^\^ / zAsk a Favor of the J^adies 

I have a great delight — an Olive Oil 
Shampoo for them 

V. K. CASSADY, B. S. M. S., Chief Chemiu 

Dear Madam: 

OUR husband knows 
me the chief chemist 
at Palmolive. 

I have just given him 
a new delight; a gentler, quicker 
shaving cream. 

Now I have as great a joy for 
you. A gentle shampoo — olive 
oil! — that does not make hair 
dry and brittle, that leaves it 
soft and gleaming. 

The favor I ask is that you try it. 
And then give me your opinion. 

I Asked 1000 Women 

Recently I asked over iooo wo- 
men what they wanted most in 
a shampoo. 

They named but one require- 
ment. But as yet had failed to 
find it: 

A thorough cleanser that would 
take out all grime and foreign 
matter — yet which would not 
take away the life and lustre that 
adds so much to charm. 

Scores of scalp experts agreed. 
They said ordinary shampoos 
were too harsh. And advised the 
oil shampoo — but made a point 
of olive oil. 

So the Olive Oil Shampoo 

Now I offer you the olive oil 
shampoo — world famous — for 
you to use at home. 

After the ordinary harsh sham- 
poo, results will be a revelation. 
You will note them in your mir- 
ror. Your friends will note them. 

And then you will do as thou- 
sands have done — thank me for 
a new delight.

Current Stage Plays 

{Readers in distant tnivns ivill do well to preserve this list for reference tv/.'iese 
spoken plays appear in their vicinity) 

Ambassador. — Tessa Kosta in the mu- 
sical gem "Caroline." 

Apollo. — "The God of Vengeance." 
Rudolph Schildkraut in an unusual play. 

Astor. — "Lady Butterfly." Slight as to 
plot but a charming musical comedy. 

Bayes. — "Liza." Another "Shuffle 
Along," destined to be even more popular. 

Belmont. — "You 
and I." H. B. War- 
ner, Lucile Watson 
and star cast in the 
Harvard Prize Play. 
Belasco. — Lenore 
Ulric in "Kiki," 
David Belasco's pro- 
duction of his own 
piquant adaptation 
of Andre Picard's 
French farce. Miss 
Ulric scores one of 
the big hits of the 
season with her bril- 
liant playing of a 
little gamine of the 
Paris music halls. 
You will love Kiki 
as you loved Peg — 
but differently. A 
typically excellent 
Belasco cast. 

Booth. — The 
"heaven'' in "The 
Seventh Heaven" is 
the top floor of a 

Montmartre tenement in Paris. It is a 
story of love and regeneration with touches 
of humor and unreality. Helen Menken 
gives an excellent performance. 

Broadhurst. — 'Whispering Wires." One 
of the numerous mystery plays now trying 
to puzzle Broadway. This one succeeds. 

Casino. — "Wildflower," with Edith Day. 
The music is exquisite. 

Central. — The home of Shubert vaude- 
ville during the week. Two concerts are 
given on Sunday. 

Century. — In "The Lady in Ermine" we 
have a musical comedy with a plot that it 
follows effectively or comes back to after 
each departure as if it really meant to be 
something more than vaudeville. The ac- 
tion concerns a romantic legend about an 
ancient European castle. Wilda Bennett 
as the heroine sings charmingly. 

Century Roof. — "The Chauve-Souris" of 
Nikita Balieff and his Russian entertainers 
from Moscow. Fourth bill. Better than ever. 

Cohan. — "The Exile." A romantic 
comedy by Sidney Toler featuring Eleanor 
Painter and Jose Ruben. 

Comedy. — "Anything Might Happen." 
Delightful comedy with Estelle Winwood 
and Roland Young. 

Cort. — Harry Leon Wilson's popular 
story, "Merton of the Movies," has lost 
none of its charm and humor in the drama- 
tization. Glenn Hunter and Florence Nash 
are perfectly cast as the hero and heroine. 

Earl Carroll. — "The Gingham Girl." A 
very tuneful, interesting musical comedy 
with a chorus of eight lively flappers. 
Helen Ford is the gingham girl, and Eddie 
Buzzell furnishes the comedy. A triumph 
of quality over quantity. 

Eltinge.- — "Morphia" is a play that acts 
as a vehicle for Lowell Sherman to give 
a realistic portrayal of a drug fiend. 

Empire. — -"Zander the Great." Alice 
Brady's return to the stage. Review later. 

Forty-fourth Street. — "Sally, Irene and 
Mary" is a musical comedy full of the 
usual pretty girls, dancing and songs. 

Forty-eighth Street. — "Anathema." Re- 
view later.

Second engagement of the popularisical

After the first treatment you will feel so much 
better you'll tliink you are cured. But don't stop 
with one picture. Keep the treatment up. Take all 
six — and you'll want to cure others!

Editor's Note. — This is the third and lost article by Mr. Leeds 
on the cause, result and cure for censorship. We hope you will 
not overlook the fact that, after all, the remedy is in your hands. 
If there is any other phase of the moving picture industry yoti 
would like to have discussed, let us know. We'll see Mr. Leeds. 

JL'ST as there is a remedy for everything from spring 
fever to Ben Turpin's shortcomings as a romantic 
lead, so also there is a cure for censorship. Like all 
diseases, however, it requires diagnosis. Examined 
thoughtfully, it discloses to us, its doctors and physicians, 
two important aspects. It is either: 

( 1 ) A menace to entertainment ; or 

(2) An attempt to- lessen the free spread of information, an 
attempt to curtail freedom of thought, and hence a thing political 
in its nature to be remedied by the voters of the republic. 

In short, the remedy lies in your hands. If you are 
movie fans, you are voters, too, hut politics is a matter, 
first, of argument, and, secondly, of organization. The 
argument in favor of censorship is that pictures of an un- 
fortunate moral tone have from time to time been offered 
the public. That this, if it ever happened really, might 
not happen again, the picture producers themselves set up 
the Honorable Will H. Hays as a boss. That the pro- 
duction of pictures over which honest people may differ 
was usually the work of fly-by-nighters who sneaked into 
the game and sneaked out with their clean-up is not so 
generally understood. 

Xor is it clear, generally speaking, that for such dis- 
agreeable occurrences there was a cure without resort 
to censorship. Granting that an immoral picture ever was 
shown li these United States of America, to end its run 
required only an appeal to the courts. Any citizen could 
go in a id make that appeal and get immediate action. 
Citizens who do not like the movies have searched end- 
lessly f<lr causes to take to court. Failing to find them, 
they hit- upon censorship as a scheme for bringing their 
prejudices to bear on our favorite amusement. 

The point cannot be too strongly emphasized that there 
is everywhere in the union already a remedy for immoral 
pictureal. Should one be produced and shown, all that is 
necessary is to call it to the court's attention. The judge 
will end it quickly, but this is not what censors want. 
They want to clamp down their narrow prejudices on 
every type of picture. For example, because of censorship : 

Girls have no legs in many states. 

Kisses must be so long and no longer. In Maryland you cannot 
kiss your wife's shoulder, in Ohio her foot. 

Cigarets aren't smoked by men or women in Kansas. 

In Pennsylvania babies are neither born nor expected. 

Such words as "ornery," "hot doggie," "wild oats," "bright t 
'baby lamb" and "gimme" are looked on askance. 

Robert Louis Stevenson's famous children's story, "Treasure 
Island," is regarded as an incentive for all youngsters to becomr 
pirates and horse thieves, while Jackie Coogan breaking window « 
in "The Kid" is also a bad example to other kids ! 

In Pennsylvania doll clothes are suggestive. 

Enough ! Obviously, the censors' idea is not to impi 
our morals, but something else again. What this some- 
thing else is, we may well set out to inquire, for if r 
playboys of the western world are allowed to continue 
to act like a lot of scared cats dancing the light fan- 
tastic in a pool of* molasses they will slowly but surely 
ruin the movies as a source of entertainment. 

Obviously, if they are to continue in power, no one 
will dare produce anything human enough to be inter- 
esting. To do so would be to invite your filing destruc- 
tion, so why continue them in power, a power they seek 
not for the reasons they give but for the reason given 
by George Bernard Shaw, the playwright, when he pointed 
out that the movies by improved use of the sign language, 
a language the same in every land, could easily revolu- 
tionize the world. Taking charge of them to see that the 
revolution they bring about suits a narrow minded few 
is a purely "political action. 

So far it has succeeded in great states like New York. 
Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kansas, Maryland, Virginia and cer- 
tain Canadian provinces, but the issue was joined last fall 
in Massachusetts and lost by the censorship advocates. 
The campaign was instructive, the majority 344.921 votes 
against censorship. Before this, the issue had been left 
to governors and legislatures. 

This time the people got a chance to express their minds. 
The total vote was 553,173 against 208.252 in favor. The 
majority against censorship was 136,669 votes greater than 
the total negative vote, but this happy result was brought 
about in anything but a haphazard fashion. It was the 
result, first, of argument, and, secondly, of organization. 
Those opposed organized a Committee of Massachu- 
setts Citizens Against Censorship. On this committee

N Hollywood, everybody sits around and yearns 

and yearns. 

Every one I know in die film colony wishes she 
were something else. They all sit around the sets 
and sigh for the day when the great ambish comes 

It goes without saying, of course, that most of 
them crave to be something they couldn't be — and 
wouldn't like if they were. Which sounds a little 
mixed but is true. 

Here's Mary Pickford the crowned queen of mo- 
tion pictures— so far above all jealousies and rivalries 
that no other girl dreams of disputing her absolute 
sway . . . rich beyond the dreams of avarice . . . 
the most adored and most famous woman who ever lived. . . . 
Of course there is nothing that Mary could possibly yearn for . . . 

Oh, isn't there? 

Now all this fame and 
glory and wealth and so on 
doesn't mean so much to 
Mary. She is a lady with 
a crushed ambition. What

Mary wants to be is a painter. In her soul hunger 
moments she sees herself standing in front of an 
easel, a palette on one little thumb, perhaps her hair 
mussed up a little and a little smudge of paint across 
her face and a queen sitting on the throne to be 
painted. Mary also mixes her dreams a little with 
a yearning to be an interior decorator. She can 
see herself walking thru a new house with a newly

D. W. Griffith has always cherished a secret ambition 
to be a great orator, swaying the masses by his voice. 
His favorite characters in all history are men like Danton 
who have held mobs in the hollow of their hands. The 
only trouble is they have always 
been revolutionists. If D. W. could 
only find something eminently re- 
spectable as befitting a Kentucky 
gentleman to sway them about. The 
only outlet he can find for swaying 
is putting skids under cen- 
sorship. The truth is, he 
could do it too. Griffith 
has an almost hypnotic 
power over men. The only 
trouble is, in his case, the 
mob swaying days of the 
world seem to be over — for 
Kentucky gentlemen. 

Lillian Gish has a peculiar 
dream that occasionally af- 
flicts her when things go 
wrong in the studio. Now 
this is a funny one. She 
would like to be the lady 
principal of a girls' college. 
She can see herself starkling 
on the platform and dis- 
coursing to a thrilled and 
excited group of attentive 

young ladies upon the peculiarities of the dative case as 
used by Cicero in his famous orations. And she can see 
herself getting letters from former pupils telling her that 
all their successes in life have come from the sweet lessons 
she imparted to them in the use of the cum clause in rela- 
tion to the subjunctive mood. 

Dorothy wants to be anything except an actress. She 
confesses that every time something slips the trolley during 
the making of a picture, she grabs up the Sunday paper 
and reads the "want" columns. She says she has dis- 
covered that the only thing she could do except act would 
be to get a job as cook in a family where they are fasting 
on a hot water diet. 

Dorothy's husband — James Rennie — he's another 
yearner. One of the best juvenile actors in the world, he 
considers his job to be only a means to an end. What 
James wants to do is run a newspaper. In his dream 
moments, he can see himself in an editorial sanctum, 
moulding public opinion and just laying out the reptile 
contemporaries who have the audacity to dispute his views 
on the protective tariff — just laying them out in long cold 

Louise Fazenda ... it means nothing in her life to be 
the funniest woman on the screen. What 
she wants to do is to have a ranch in Cali- 
fornia and be married to some nice man who 
understands pruning young orange trees and 
not to have worry about getting fat. She 
says that she will be happy when she over- 
hears some one say (as she comes to town 
from her ranch) "Good heavens! There's 
that fat Fazenda woman. She's had another 
baby." Louise is quite likely to fulfil her 
ambition insofar as owning a ranch is con- 
cerned. A flock of ranches maybe. Louise 
is a miraculously successful investor. She 
must have all kinds of money by this time. 

Harry Carey, the cowboy actor (who never was a cow- 
boy by the way) yearns also. All his life he says he has 
wanted to write and 
act in sea stories. He 
wants to be a tough- 
rough -first -mate and 
buck the waves with

feet and tiny little white 
hands. She has delicate fea- 
tures, a tenderly curved mouth 
with a wistful droop, gentle 
brown eyes and dark curling 
hair. There is about her slight 
person an air of pensive calm, 
a magnificent — a tremendous 
serenity. One immediately 
senses that this girl has suffered,

grinds out bitter years ; but it 
has not destroyed her. Quite 
the contrary. Here for once, 
were the uses of adversity 
sweet. Hers is the peace of 
painfully acquired wisdom. 
Beverly Bayne has come thru. 

Francis X. Bushman is an- 
other story, another type. He 
is big and blond and ruddy, 
bristling with good health and 
unbelievably fit. He is robust, 
vigorous, aggressive. He is like 
a strong clean wind blowing. 
He really believes that all is 
right with the world, but what 
is more remarkable, makes you 
think so too, no matter how 
deep rooted your pessimism may 
be. He is wholesome, with a 
vitality that keeps that sanity 
and sense he possesses in so 
brave a measure from ever be- 
ing dull. He is the husband of 
Beverly Bayne and beside that 
tie, they are alike in mind altho 
they seem to have arrived at the 
same conclusions, the same con- 
tented, ultimately wise state, so 
very differently. 

They were completing the 





last scenes o i 
"Modern Marriage" 
out at the Whitman 
Bennett studios, 
when it was our 
privilege to talk to 
them. Mr. Bush- 
man was about to 
throttle an attempt- 
ed black-mailer, so 
we didn't interrupt 
and Beverly Bavin- 
sat down beside us 
and talked ; while 
her husband roared 
defiance on the set 
and the director 
megaphoned his ap- 
proval ; and her 
little son. the three 
year old Richard 
pict ured here, 
climbed on and off 
her lap and got in 
the way of the car- 
penters and nearly 
pulled the scenery 
over on his small 
head like any other 
small boy ; and the 
extras wandered 
around in their pa- 
thetically dull fash- 
ion. But Beverly 
Bayne never lost 
her poise or became 
even slightly ruffled. 

"Do you find it 
very different ?" we 

"Oh no.'' she re- 
plied, "not so very. 
Better photography 
and more acute di- 
rection. The only 
radical change I 
note is the gener- 
osity with footage. 
One is really given 

a chance now — that is — time to register an emotion. In 
the old days if ten feet of film was wasted the company 
contemplated bankruptcy. Now you can have all the 
footage you need. Except for that, it is very much the 
same. It is less than four years you know, actually." 

We remembered this pair, tho it seemed longer ago 
than that. Francis X. Bushman had a vogue then com- 
parable to that of Valentino's now. He was the romantic 
hero of the day. The unfortunate circumstances that 
forced them to abandon pictures for a time, are universally 
known. There is no need of going into that again. They 
went on the vaudeville stage and stuck to that, altho a

1AM glad to confirm what I said previously. England is 
awakening, is now very much awake, and I have noticed, 
amongst others presented during the last four weeks, three 
pictures of decided merit, one of which contains scenes which 
might even bear the signature of D. W. Griffith. 

One must certainly remember that Miss Mae Marsh who 
plays the lead in it, is American, but the producer is British 
and he has succeeded in making one of the best pictures 
England has so far produced. The title of the picture is 
"Paddy-the-next-best-thing." The other two pictures are "A 

Royal Divorce" of which I 
spoke in detail in my last 
article, and "The Virgin 
Queen" the new color film 
directed by J. Stuart Black- 
ton. Both are well pro- 
duced and can favorably 
compare with the best pro- 
ductions of today. 

Let me just mention that 
"The Prodigal Son" from 
the book by Sir Hall Caine, 
and which has just been 
presented to the Press at 
the Covent Garden Theatre. 
London, is the longest pic- 
ture made in England ; as 
the producer wished, con- 
trary to the usual custom, 
to follow page by page all 
the incidents of the book 
and reproduce them on the 
screen. . I repeat, it is cer- 
tainly the longest English 
picture, but the few inter- 
esting dramatic scenes are 
lost in the 17,000 feet of 


When Henry Diamant- 
Berger was on location recently completing the 
sequel to "The Three Musketeers," he paid a 
visit, with some members of his company, to 
the great French tragedienne, Mme. Sarah 
Bernhardt. It was then announced that she 
would appear in a film directed by Diamant- 
Berger. It will be remembered that Sarah 
Bernhardt appeared in two or three films made 
before and during the war, amongst which are 
"Tosca" and "The Story of Queen Elizabeth." 
A friend of mine who approached the secretary 
of the Paris Theatre belonging to Mme. Sarah 
Bernhardt, told me that he did not think that 
the celebrated actress would be able to work at 
all for the cinema owing to her health which 
has given her much trouble of late. * 

Among the latest important French films pre- 
sented is "La Bouquetiere des Innocents" which 
is a historical film of the time of Henry IV. 
A very interesting prologue begins this picture

Among tlu' t i ! 1 1 1 > nude in Sweden during the last few 
months is "Fire on Board" directed b) Victoi Seastrom. The 
scenario is written bj the well-known Swedish author Hjalma 
Bergman who is also well known in many other countries 
his hook "Love's Crucible." The action of "Fire on Board" 
takes place in great part on 
hoard a ship and is full of 
dramatic excitement. It is 
a story of the fight of two 
men for a woman. ( hving 
to the limited space it has 
thru the fact that the action 
is going on within the rails 
oi the ship, the picture has 
a fascinating grip on the 
spectators. The part of the 
film where the ship is sink- 
ing is very sensational and 
is likely to be unique in the 
history of the film. The 
leading artists are Matheson 
Lang, the well known 
English stage actor, Victor 
Seastrom, and Mrs. Jenny

During the present year, 
the Svenska Filmindustri 
will make a considerably 
greater number of films 
than before. The staff of 
Swedish actors is increased 
and furthermore the im- 
portant Russian film man 
Dimitri Buchowetzki, the 
producer of "Danton" which 
was shown in America under the title of "All 
For A Woman" has been engaged. The scenario 
of one of the films which Buchowetzki is going 
to make has been written by himself in col- 
laboration with the Hungarian author Alfred 
Lekete. The name of this film will be "The 
Masquerade of Life" and will show the in- 
dividual struggle for happiness, gold and love. 


One seems to ignore what is done in Russia 
with respect to pictures. Since we heard of 
Soviet Russia, we have not heard- very much 
about the cinema industry there. I am informed 
that during the months in which poverty- 
reigned a society called "Russ" was formed 
and different pictures made. All of these photo- 
plays deal more with Russian customs and 
habits than anything else and are consequently- 
very characteristic. I have secured some pic- 
tures of one of these films which is called

Little Old New York 


A story of early New York days when Bawling Green was a park and lower Manhattan was a resi- 
dential district; and Robert Fulton was about to launch the first steamboat; and names like John Jacob 
Astor, Cornelius Vanderbilt. Henry Brcvoort and Delmonico were just beginning to mean something 


'HIXGS do be comin' too thick and fast for this 
owld mon." opined John O'Day, lifting his bent 
back from the peat bos* from which he had been 
cutting poor man's fuel in big square clumps. "Whist 
now, Alannah. howld yer peace. I'll be \vi' ze." 

Dancing up and down before him in a whirl of excite- 
ment was Patsy, his daughter. Tears stained her cheeks 
but laughter curled her lips. She scowled and smiled with 
one motion. Only the Irish can do this. 

"They do be taking all our things father — the sheriff 
and the landlord and two dirty spalpeens from up Darragh 
way — your great big chest, father is gone — divvle a chair 
to sit on or bed to sleep in will be left to us — haste 
father " 

"Mind yer tongue, lass." her father answered stepping 
swiftly toward her. " 'Dirty spalpeen' and 'divvle' is 
divvle a word for a lady to use. But what for are ye 
smilin' whin such misfortune comes to yer owld father?". 

"Oh this letter," Patsy answered waving a bulky en- 
velope toward him. "It seems like good news but Pat 
nor me — nor I — cant understand it altogether." 

And good news it was; just in time too for all sorts of 
reasons. John O'Day's brother had died over in America, 
which was no particular loss to John for they had been 
estranged for a great many years. But his brother was a 
rich man and he had left all his vast fortune to John's 
son Patrick; instead of leaving it to his second wife and 
her son who had come between the brothers long ago, and 


for whom old John cherished a deathless enmity. This 
was mighty good luck for John; for John had fallen foul 
of the world of wealth and ease and had spent his life in 
impracticable dreams of Irish freedom and Irish progress 
and with typically Irish sentiment had overl' oked en- 
tirely his own freedom and progress. Ireland must be- 
free, but it didn't matter so much that his children were 
often close to starving and cold with neglect. Patricia 
was a hardy youngster and had survived but Patrick who 
was ailing from birth was now a helpless invalid. 

O'Day's household goods meagre tho they were, were 
to be sold at auction for his debts on this pleasant summer 
day in the year of Our Lord 1820. With the arrival of 
the letter from Xew York he let them go cheerfully. 
Lamentations were turned into rejoicing and for the first 
time in John O'Day's life some practical plan was 
on foot for hastening them to America. They had need 
for haste, because by the terms of the will which provided 
that in the event of the non-appearance of Patrick ( ►'Day, 
the money was to revert to his stepson. Larry Delavan. 
the time had almost e'apsed for claiming the fortune. 
Unfortunately much valuable time had been lost while 
the lawyer had dug them out from their obscurity. 

Larry Delavan stared suspiciously at the two figures 
who stood somewhat dubiously before him in the hall of 
his spacious New York residence. 


Larry Delavan stared suspiciously at the two odd figures before him. "We be John 
O'Day and his da — son, Pat," the old man muttered, "and we've come over the sea 
from Ireland to claim yer stepfather's fortune. I hev all the proofs in me coat. What's 
to do now?" The younger one only stared back 

"We be John O'Day and his da — son, Pat," the old 
man muttered, "and we've come over the sea from Ireland 
to claim yer stepfather's fortune. I hev all the proofs 
here in me coat. What's to do now?" 

"Good Lord ! I dont know," ejaculated the young 
Delavan ungraciously, shaking a mental fist at this malign 
trick of fate's that had cheated him out of his stepfather's 
rich inheritance at the last minute. "I suppose you'll have 
to stay here. I'll have Reilly show you to a — to your 

"Father," cried the young Pat bursting into tears when 
they were safely behind the door, "I can never do it. 
You shouldn't have asked me to — Such a handsome young 
man — such a fine gentleman — and it's really his money. 
We haven't any right to it. We " 

"Howld yer tongue," John O'Day interrupted angrily. 
"Is it our fault yer brother Pat died on shipboard? God 
rest his soul !" he added hastily blessing himself piously. 
"He's better off all dead than half dead, Patsy child, ye're 
after knowin' that. Yer uncle's yer own ain't he? Blood 
kin? We're entitled to his money, but even if we ain't, 
we be going to claim it. So now ye are Patrick O'Day, 
nephew to the late lamented. Whin ye git the money ye 
can do as it plazes ye. Come cheer up Colleen, no more 
tantrums and bad scran to the Delavan !" 

So here was a sorry situation, not to say perilous. 
Unwelcome guests in an unwelcome masquerade. Un- 

welcome masquer- 
ade to Patricia 
anyway, who 
woman - like and 
Irish had Compli- 
cated matters by 
promptly falling 
in love with the 
handsome, sulky, 
reckless Larry. 
Being a boy under 
the circumstances 
was a handicap to 
say the least . . . 
but still if she had 
stayed a girl she 
wouldn't — 
couldn't be near 
him at all, which 
fact somewhat 
compensated for 
the hateful 

It was hard re- 
membering tho. 
The im puisne to 
snuggle against 
Larry was at 
times almost irre- 
sistible, but boys 
didn't do that. She 
spent hours 
brushing out her 
short jonquil yel- 
low hair whose 
sacrifice she still 
wept over in se- 
cret. Boys cer- 
tainly didn't do 
that". She had 
tried to smoke 
too, one of the 
long slender pipes 
the young bloods 
of the day were 
affecting ; but it had made her fearfully ill and young 
Fitzgreen Halleck and Washington Irving, Larry's cronies 
had laughed at her and she had stamped her foot and run 
out of the room. In retrospect it hadn't seemed a par- 
ticularly virile or manly performance. She must be more 
careful. Hang the old money anyway . . . Larry hated 
her for an interloper. 

But when old John O'Day begrudgingly died and she 
was left utterly alone Larry Delavan had a change of 
heart. He saw in her then only a helpless forlorn lonely 
youngster in a foreign land, grieving for the only one who 
was dear to her. He was kind to her then, and Pat came 
so near to giving herself away that she was on the point of 
confessing the truth a dozen different times. 

But it was wonderful to have money. It provided 
endless entertainment and after her first tearful grief Pat 
began to liven up again and be her own cheerful saucy 
dare devil self. Larry was her gravest care. He spent 
most of his time gambling and drinking, attending prize 
fights and balls with equal ardor. There was one mincing 
miss just home from London that Pat hated with all her 
heart. Her name was Ariana de Puyster and Larry 
loved her — or at least Pat thought he did. She played 
the piano, "Maiden's Prayer" and "Hearts and Flowers" 
and that sort of thing. Very sentimental. Larry seemed 
to like them tho. So Pat unpacked her harp that she 
hadn't touched since she had left the old country. 


She used to ^ihk in a sweet throat) soprano 

"I he harp that once thru I ara's halls 
The soul of mu>iL' shed ; 

Now hangs ai mute on rara'a walls, 

Vs tlio that soul were dead." 

She really played it remarkably well and she had an 
inexhaustible repertoire ol old Irish ballads and folk 
songs, plaintively melancholy, as her countrj and its 
people are at heart, for all the comic opera Irishmen one 
reads and hears about. Sometimes she would twang the 
strings suddenly and unexpectedly into one of the rollick- 
ing Irish jigs. Every me loved Pat but no one could ever 
tell what she was going to do 

Larry seemed to like her 
playing too. Because, once 
when Miss Betty Schuyler 

whom Pat also detested, was 
giving a party at her big house 

across the lawn from Larry's, 
and Ariana was playing sweet- 
ly on the piano for the assem- 
bled guests in general and 
Larry in particular. Larry had 
sneaked back across the lawn 
to listen to Pat playing her 
wistful Irish melodies and 
hoping he would come. She 
almost told him that night. He 
stood at the gate looking very 
hard at her and she trembled 
inside scarce daring to breathe. 

"You're a queer one, Pad- 
dy." he said, "nice little kid. 
I'm awfully fond of you." 

And "I love, love, love you." 
Pat's heart was sighing so loud 
she thought he must hear it, 
and blushed and ran away. 

"Just like a girl !" she 
thought afterwards. "He's just 
stupid not to know it." But 
Pat was afraid now for the 
falsehoods she was involved in 
and held her peace as best she 

At about this time Robert 
Fulton was going to launch his 
first steam boat. Wise heads 
wagged and said it couldn't be 
done, but the reckless foolish 
ones were crazy to invest their 
money in the venture. Larry 
Delavan was one of these. 
The only trouble was he didn't 
have any money to put up. 
Whereupon Pat gaily hood- 
winked her lawyer, old John 
Jacob Astor into giving her 
ten thousand dollars, a goodly 
sum for those days, and 
promptly offered it to Larry. 

To Larry's everlasting credit 
and Pat's intense chagrin he 
refused to take it. She almost 
wept. "Such a pretty trick 
I played on old Astor, to get 
it," she wailed. "Neat as 
Sunday pants. And now you 
go and act uppity. You're 
a hateful old thing and I — 

"Why Paddy, boy," the bewildered I ai

He stood at the gate looking very hard at her and she trembled inside 

scarce daring to breathe. "You're a queer one, Paddy," he said "nice little 

kid. I m awfully fond of you." And, "I love, love, love you!" Pat's heart 

was sighing so loud she thought he must hear it

With one twist he tore the flimsy silk shirt half off. "Stop!" screamed Pat, "Oh, stop! 

I'm a girl." "What the hell?" burst from the amazed Terror who stood stock still 

staring at her with his mouth hanging stupidly open 

•a good boy." And he patted her affectionately on the 

"You darling, you darling," Pat's heart was saying this 
time but she had to be content with Larry's decision. 

"Now Reilly," said Pat on the night of the big fight 
in her most wheedling tones, "I'll buy you a pound of 
your favorite tobacco if you'll do something for me." 

"Shure an' I will, gossoon," old Reilly replied "whativer 
it may be.' 

"You've promised," said 
around the old man's neck. 

"Whist b'y," said Reilly, 
"another hug like that and 
this old man will turn up 
missing. Well, what div- 
vlement is it now you're 
after wantin' to do?" 

But he looked doubtful 
when Pat told him what 
it was, and the bribe had 
to be doubled, and it took 
all Pat's coaxing and ca- 
joling powers, which 
heaven knows, were prac- 
tically irresistible, before 
he finally gave in. 

In the spacious fire- 
house was a mob of im- 
patient men. A prize fight 
was an event in those days 
of comparative calm. 
Bowling Green was a 
park, lower Manhattan a 
residential section, the fire 
house a rendezvous for all 
the young gallants in town

— Larry of course and his pals in their long tight trousers 
and frilled shirt fronts ; farmers in their wrinkled smocks ; 
young toughs in short black- velveteen jackets handker- 
chiefs tied around their throats ; coachmen in their coats 
with many little capes cracking their whips; firemen in 
their quaint impractical uniforms ; a varied and motley 
throng of men. 

The two fighters were at it, pounding bare flesh, punch- 
ing and jabbing, responding to the cries of their various 
backers with fresh aggressiveness. Larry Delavan was 

unhappy. Brute strength 
was triumphing over skill. 
The Hoboken Terror had 
floored his man twice now, 
but Bully Boy had not 
taken the count either 
time. He was badly 
winded tho. Looked like 
a sure thing for the Ter- 
ror. Bully Boy couldn't 
stand up under it much 
longer. He would give out 
in another round. 

But there never was 
that other round. 

Suddenly with its clang- 
ing warning the fire bell 
had rung out. The Ter- 
ror held his hand. Bully 
Boy straightened up. The 
crowd began to scatter 
getting out of the way. 
The firemen sprang to 
their clumsy equipment. 
The fight broke up with 
no decision. The crowd 


surged to the street Everything was read) Bui :

suddenly bellowed the >1 one of the rerror's 

backers, "lit- had money on Bull) Boj 

"Delavan, Delavan," the crowd began to yell, thirsting 
for vengeance on the man who had spoiled their sport. 

'I'll horsewhip the ." snarled tin rerror, "for 

stealing my fight." 

"Tii tlu- whipping post," roared the crowd ami following 

tin- burly form of tin- llobokcn Terror they tore down the 

street to I arry'a house

hurried home, hut he did not get there first.

"Out of the way boy," the Terror 

cried threateningly. "We wants young

said Pat standing her grouni 
but turning pale. 

"None of your damn

and "he rang the tire bell 
and stopped the tight." 
cried a dozen voices. 

"No," said Pat 
throwing her head 
back as if for air. 
"He didn't ring it.

bell. I could see

the Terror. "I'll

He seized the 
terrified Pat and 
rushed down the 
street with her slender 
body flung over his 
shoulder like a sack, the 
crowd pounding at his 
heels yelling like the pos- 
sessed. On the whipping 
block Pat was tied to a post, 
hands high up over her head 
The Terror stripped to the waist ^ 

with great drops of sweat glistening 
on his coarse hide, his undershot jaw 
thrust forward like an angry bull dog 
stood beside her with a long 
black whip in his huge hand. 

Pat closed her eyes. The long 
curling leather whistled thru the 
air and cut deep into her tender 
flesh. She shrieked aloud with 
pain. Once more the cruel thong 
marked its length across her 

Later, in the garden, Patricia murmured 
something about the luck of the Irish. 
"And anyway," she added, "the money is 
just as much mine now as tho it was really 
mine." Which cryptic utterance Larry 
seemed to understand very well

At Lunch With Gloria 


An interview with the most individually dressed woman <>n the screen, wherein 

request, her clothes aren't even mentioned and her undeniable bi tins are given a chance to air 

WE ii the curb outside the studio and de 

bated concerning the noi nday repast. The press 
.cut had some >ort of a visionary nk;i aboul a 
place in Hollywood where they had -crawly things 
painted en the wall. He was ignored with a proper tneas 
ure o! contempt. Some one else suggested the Writers' 
l~lul>, the Athletic Club, some more clubs, a hotel fre- 
quented l>> movie stars, another hotel' not frequented by 
movie stars, somebody's private house and a hoi dog 

Gloria stood apart, with pursed lips, as one struggling 
with a responsibility. Suddenly she brightened. "Oh 
yes," -he -aid, "That would be nice. We'll go there 
Come on." 

The nice place turned out to he the Writers' Club 

\ year or the literati of Hollywood and way 

stations bought a fine old private house on Sunset Boule- 
vard and turned it into a most charming club. The place 
where you eat is a great cool room with vaulted ceilings 
and widely scattered tables and pattering little Filipino 
servants in white duck. 

Cdor"ia started to sit down, then changed her mind and 
moved over to a far table. From the expression on her 
face it was plain that somebody in the dining-room was 
having the most famous back in the world turned on him 
— or- her. 

"Whatever you write about me." she said, picking out 
the salad fork. "Dont say anything about my clothes." 

"What's the matter with the clothes'" 

"Nothing is the matter with my clothes," -aid Gloria 
indignantly, glancing at the fur wrap she had thrown 
hack over her chair. "But I am tired of having people 

Stall to talk about Gloria ami end b) talking ah.. ut 
clothes. ne ha- called me < ceil de Millr- 

llOl - 

"I ,<it- of girls would he glad 'beg 

"True enough." said Gloria, taking th< 

hi- mouth. "I can remember when it would have g 
me a thrill t<> have had my clothe- talked about, 
summer in Paris I wa- in one of those big dressmaking 
salons with a young regiment of designers and manikins 
dancing attendance. It suddenly came to me how I 
to -it up nights trying to do something to my one cheap 
little dres> to make it last another season. It mad. 
laugh out loud." 

" \re you any happier ':" 

(iloria considered. "What - the use," -In- -aid at last. 
"of thinking whether you wish ybu had or you wish you 
hadn't. When the chicken i- once out of the egg, 
out of the egg. You cant return to any condition that 
has passed. It is futile for me to try to think whether I 
am- happier now than I would have been if something 
■1st* had happened — or hadn't happened.'' 

Gloria savagely jaSbed her salad fork int" a lettuce 
leaf and a cruel little sneer came into her eyes ... a 
look that faded into one of wistfulness. "The trouble 
is," -he -aid. "that you cant succeed in the world without 
ming public property. I wonder why those rotten 
little scandal sheets cant let me alone. If what they said 
were true. I wouldn't complain. But it i- terrible. I 
haven't any private life. They tell me if I sued them for 
libel, they would only he worse.'' The look of a fighting 
Swede came into Gloria's eye.-. "If it weren't for my 

baby, I would ..." 

This picture is from one of Gloria's not particularly recent photoplays but we have 

used it because it seems to us to represent more perfectly than we can put into words 

the gorgeous luxuriousness and alluring beauty of this radiant woman 


Nobody found out just what she would do 
"At any rate, you wouldn't want to go 
back and be a Sennett bathing girl again. . . ." 
Gloria looked up suddenly. "I learned a 
lot from being a Sennett bathing girl." 
"About swimming?" 

"No. About acting. Comedy is a won- 
derful training. You have to get the points 
over so clearly. You exaggerate everything ; 
but in exaggeration, you learn just where 
the finished line has to go. Afterward, when 
you undertake another kind of acting, you can tone 
down your effects. It's like these artists who draw 
pictures with a few dabs and lines. They only learn 
to do that after they have mastered the art of the 
finished picture. The art of leaving out is the last 
touch you learn." 

Gloria smiled at a recollection that flashed across 
her memory. 

"I remember when I left the Sennett comedies. 
There was just one day too many of dodging pies 


and being hit with water from hoses and going 
around bare legged. I simply walked out. Then 
1 came over to the Lasky studio. Mr. Cecil de 
Mille saw me and gave me a part in 'Male and 
Female.' The first thing I had to do was to take 
off most of my clothes and scramble into the water 
again. I thought I had left the frying pan for the 

"But you learned about acting from Cecil." 
"Indeed I did. I learned that the way to act is 
not to act. I learned that the less you actually do, 
the more you convey." 

Suddenly, out of a clear sky, Gloria remarked : 

By way of a 
pleasant contrast 
to the picture on 
the other page 
are these three 
informal studies. 
We call your at- 
tention to 
Gloria's remark-

expressive eyes. 
We hope you are 
reading this in- 
terview because 
Gloria's honeyed 
tongue has 
dripped words 
of wisdom 
worth anyone's 
attention. In 
her ornamental 
head is a brain in 
perfectly good 
working order 

"I wish they would cut out the villains." 

And answering some one's question, 
she said, "There aren't really any vil- 
lains ; we are all villains ; it's the same 

"Oh yes, perfectly clear." 

"Well," she laughed. "I mean no one 
is a villain all the time. I dare say a lot 
of bandits are faithful, tender husbands. 
We are all villains Monday morning and 
saints Monday afternoon. There is no 
such thing as a good man or bad man. 
There are simply men who re-act differ- 
ently to different situations."

The Heavy 

Ernest Torrence, the screen's most villainous 
villain tells his story 


"One may smile and smile, and be a villain' 

— Shakespeare. 

Fhotograph by Melbourne Spurr, L. A. 

Py^OR, "one may smile and smile, and be a villain!'' 
I H So said Billy Shakespeare long, long ago — and 
the words were echoed by Henry King, the suc- 
cessful motion picture director of "Tol'able David," 

^nd other large productions in Hollywood, as he sent 

for Ernest Torrence, prominent comedian of musical 

comedy farne in New York. 

Thus a wonderfully fine comedian was submerged by 

the cruel and domineering heavy of "Tol'able David," 

and Mr. Torrence planted himself firmly in the depths 

of motion picture endeavors. 

"It had always been my dream, my greatest desire. 

from the time of my arrival in America in 1911, to 
enter motion picture work," said Mr. Torrence as we sat in 
his cozy Holly- , 
wood bungalow 
and he explained 
how the speaking 
stage had lost a 
fun-maker, and 
the silver sheet 
gained a heavy. 

"My constant 
entreaties to mo- 
tion picture di- 
rector friends at 
the Lambs Club, 
and in other 
theatrical circles. 
were all laugh- 
ingly brushed 
aside. 'Entirely 
too tall,' said one. 
'You wouldn't

man can be a real actor he must have 
been a comedian.

despicable one."

films. In several pictures, however, he has 
portrayed rather lovable characters, as 
"Mahaffy," in "The Prodigal Judge," a 
Vitagraph picture made in New York, and 
"Emilio," a half-witted clown in "Singed

A Song 
Of The Screen 

Pictures and Verse 

Two young birds that bill and coo 
As no birds of our ken do, 
Always herald love's young dream 

— Upon the screen 
And the sunny-curled young thing 
Dances playfully in the spring 
As the hero comes in view 

— Upon the screen 
When the young wife's sore and quits. 
Baby son develops fits, 
Crying "Doesn't ma love pa?'" 

— Upon the screen 
Mothers totter, frail and white, 
Reading Bibles all the night, 
Waiting for the wayward son 

— Upon the screen 
When the villain's work is o'er 
He's not wanted any more, 
A violent death's the thing 

— Upon the screen 

Artist always wins the'prize 
Just before his child-wife dies 
And they sail for sunny Spain, 

— Upon the screen 
Cast upon a desert isle 
Marceled cutie spends a while 
Learning butlers are real gents 

— Upon the screen 
Situations like these are 
Much more plausible by far 
Than some others you may see 

— Upon the screen 
And the reason, critics say 
Js because draw-mah today 
Is still in swaddling clothes 

— Upon the screen 
This may all be very well 
But, poor devil, try to sell 
Any movies unlike those

Photograph by Witzel. L. A. 

A late portrait of Frank Lloyd, whose sympathetic comprehension of the 
genius of Jackie Coogan made possible that beautiful photoplay "Oliver 
Twist." Mr. Lloyd has just finished directing "Within the Law" for 
Norma Talmadge. He invests his productions with humanity rather than 
sentimentality, a rare and invaluable quality for a motion picture director 

to possess 

some of you will be right. 

"Tell me about your Jackie Coogan," I said. 

Director Frank Lloyd looked as tho the subject pleased 
him hugely. He leaned forward, clasped his hands, and 
his smile was almost tender. It was a smile that was 
good to see. One could tell that he was thinking not 
only in his directorial capacity of "Oliver Twist," but 
also about a little boy of whom he is paternally fond, 
and of a great artist to whom he would seek to pay 

"Jackies doesn't belong to any one person," Mr. Lloyd 
said, "he belongs* to the world. He has a great soul. He 
is not a child prodigy. He is not precocious in the way 
that word is usually meant. Jackie is utterly natural, abso- 
lutely spontaneous and wholly unconscious and unforced. 

"I didn't realize 
until we were thru 
with 'Oliver 
Twist' what a 
great artist Jackie 
really is. You 
dont realize it, be- 
cause he is so 
natural. You never 
feel that you are 
directing him. 
You never feel 
that he is acting 
. . .he isn't, as a 
matter of fact, he 
is wholly feeling. 

"Jackie's great- 
ness is in his in- 
tuitive under- 
standing — and in 
his eyes. He has 
the most extraor- 
dinary eyes I have 
ever seen. Every 
grief, every joy, 
every emotion and 
shade of emotion 
are mirrored in 
those great eyes. 
The rest of his 
face is just like 
thousands of other 

"But put the 
idea out of your 
mind, if it is there, 
that Jackie is 'old.' 
He is thoroly a 
child. He prefers 
to play with chil- 
dren, and when he 
plays with them he 
plays honest-to- 
goodness kid 

"He has, for- 
tunately, the right 
kind of parents. 
They are bright, 
simple people, who love him to death, of course, but who 
keep him unspoiled and a child. They dont pamper him 
and they dont allow him to become impressed with his 
own importance. He has no conception of it at all, and 
I have seen him shrink away from crowds or from re- 
porters or interviewers who approach him as Jackie 
Coogan, Screen Star. He is a little boy and he prefers 
to be met upon his own little-boyish ground. 

"Jackie will go on . . and on . . . Some child 
'prodigies' go so far and then stop, but Jackie, as I have 
said, even tho it seem paradoxical, is not a child prodigy. 
He is a genius and he 'has it.' There will come a time, 
perhaps, when for reasons of education and because he 
will have reached the awkward age, Jackie will leave the 
screen for a short while. But he will come back again 
and the man will fulfil the boy. I know that. 

"Before we began to make 'Oliver Twist' Jackie was

absorbed. His grandmother prodded his 
politeness. "Jackie," she said, "what do 
you say to Mr. Lloyd?" Then Jackie paid 
me a most tremendous tribute. He looked 
up at his grandmother for a moment with 
those great and grateful eyes and said, 
simply, "Oh, grandma, what can I say?" and 
then turned back again. 

"That is Jackie. His emotions are au- 
thentic. He never exaggerates or pretends. 
His small body is all child, but it houses a 
great soul and thru the clear, miraculous 
windows of his eyes that soul shines surely 
thru. One may spend a casual afternoon with

"Jackie," says Frank Lloyd be- 
lying the title, "doesn't belong 
to any one person. He belongs 
to the world. He has a great 
soul. He is not a child prodigy. 
He is not precocious in the way 
the word is usually meant. He 
is utterly natural, absolutely 
spontaneous and wholly uncon- 
scious and unforced. He is a 
great artist" 

youngster, no evidence of precocity ; 
but one could not work with this 
malleable little bit of eager humanity 
for any length of time without label- 
ling him genius. It would be to 
stultify one's intelligence otherwise." 

This then is Frank Lloyd's opinion 
of Jackie Coogan. Frank Lloyd him- 
self is a man of acute perception and 
unmistakable discernment. He has 
been directing pictures for a long 
time and has watched the progress 
of stars with an impartial eye. He 
is accustomed to weighing genius in 
the balance, and when he says that 
Jackie has it — well . . . His opinion 
of me, the Classic editor has refrained 
from printing as she promised.

A MAGNIFICENT achievement ia "Th< red Wagon"

vigorous account >>t' ;i bygone people the hardy pioti 
.it '48. Here is -tark. vivid drama here is historj being recorded 
in a gorgo>u* canvas of those adventurous the Roaring 

Forties. Gigantic in conception and execution this superb tapestrj 
transports one with its swift hurricane of events. It instills in the 
spectator a genuine patriotism for liis country. He lives over 
again the mighty purpose of these c lurageous pioneers who turned 
their faces toward the setting sun with a cry of "Westward lln!" 
Theirs was an adventure which dwarfs into insignificance anything 
which had to do with the colonization of America. 

One catches the true -pint of these people as they drove their 
covered wagons thru an unknown country. They would found 
an empire in the 
West ; they would not 
be denied in their 
determination to gain 
sanctuary and soil in 
far-off Oregon. So 
we live over their 
arduous journey thru 
the trackless wastes — 
thru the prairies, over 
the mountains — a 
journey which took a 
year to accomplish — a 
journey which re- 
corded but ten miles a 
day. Think of it ! 

We clamber aboard 
Ogle's wagon or 
mount Kerrigan's 
horse : the bugle 
sounds ; the far-flung 
wagons strike out and 
the glorious adventure 
is afoot. And what a 
journey ! James 
Cruze, the director of 
this vital screen epic 
— an adaptation of 
Emerson Hough's 
story, pilots us thru 
stirring scenes 
fraught with romance, 
thrills and excitement. The suspense is 
terrific because we are living over the 
hazardous trip of these hardy tillers of 
the soil. Danger is everywhere. Starva- 
tion stalks in our midst. And it is staved 
off when the buffaloes are sighted. 
What an inspiring scene — this bison 
hunt, one which might truly be called 
an animated Remington. 

But the biggest, individual thrill, the 
most stirring moment arrives when the 
Platte River is reached and the pioneers 
face the first obstacle. To see them 
fording this rushing river — the oxen and 
horses plunging into the turbulent 
stream and the wagons floated with logs 
is a sight which is as inspiring as it is

vagabonds who compose the motley throng. And two

and Tully Marshall. Watching them in a little friendly

E leave the big 
outdoors to be in- 
troduced to the 
screen reproduction of 
A. S. M. Hutchinson's 
idealization of the char- 
acter, Mark Sabre, in his 
remarkable study, "If 
Winter Comes," which 
Harry Millarde made for 
Fox. While the salient 
points of this book which 
brings spiritual comfort 
to the reader are brought 
forth upon the silver- 
sheet, it lacks the same 
vital, spiritual flavor. This stylist is 
difficult to record upon cold celluloid. 
Chapters — many of them — must be 
absorbed to catch the full meaning of 
his characterization. Yet Mr. Millarde 
has made a sincere effort to record 
Hutchinson's idealization of Sabre. It 
is a character study which embraces 
three distinct romances in the life of its 
lovable figure. He is caught in a mael- 
strom of tragic consequences before he 
finds a haven of happiness with a 
woman who understands him. 

The picture is wordy and long-drawn 
out and rather episodic. But imagina- 
tive spectators will discover many 
moments of interest in it. Percy Mar- 
mont is a good selection for Sabre and 
enacts the character with a com- 
mendable spiritual flavor. As there are 
few dramatic opportunities the other 
players may be excused tor interpreting 
their roles with marked enthusiasm.

RF.X INGRAM'S genius foi fashioning a moving, 
colorful storj is manifested again in Metros 
"Where the Pavement Ends." Here is an old 
friend, the South Sea Islands formula, which has been 

treated in such an artistic way that it never become- 

conventional. It suggests the director at his best he 

cause he makes an old pattern seem new. 

Here we have the usual figures — the missionary, his 
daughter, the vicious trader and the native lover. To 
escape the abysmal brute the ^irl turns to the islander 
who protects her. Perfectly ohvious? Yes, in cold 
print, hut translated upon the screen its obviousness is 
overcome by Ingram's dramatic treatment. What a 
hrush he uses ! There is the colorful background carry- 
ing a gorgeous design and against it is enacted a com- 
pact little story acted to the queen's taste by Ramon 
Xavarro as the native, Alice Terry as the charming 
daughter of the dominie, and Harry Morey as the 
brutal trader. It is in- 
spiring and optically 
pleasing. The very title 
exudes romance.

attraction, "The 
L Famous Mrs. 
Fair," furnishes proof 
that it occasionally pays 
to have a real playwright 
on the job. Here is 
James Forbes's stage 
play which met with un- 
bounded success upon 
the stage which comes to 
the screen with its vital 
parts intact. Telling the 
story of the dissolution 
of a family thru the 
feminine urge to find ex- 
pression, it sends forth 
truthful slants on life. 

The wife and mother 
has her medals pinned 
on her. And success and popularity go 
to her head. Consequently she takes to 
the lecture tour and during her absence 
the house tumbles to pieces. The pic- 
ture soars to a mighty effective climax 
when the mother and father realize they 
have sinned against their children. A 
desperate search is made to save the 
daughter from dishonor. Thru bring- 
ing her back to her senses a reconcilia- 
tion is effected and harmony reigns 

Good, sound philosophy and logical 
drama are neatly dovetailed in this very 
human story which is capitally acted by- 
Myrtle Stedman as the mother who 
learns that her place is in the home. 
Marguerite de la Motte as the outrage- 
ously modern flapper daughter, lends a 
choice bit to a cast excellent in every 
respect. Fred Xiblo has brought forth 
all its vital plot and characterization. 
It's a picture for thinking people.

Flashes From 

Of the Stage

THE most important eastern news item of the month is that David 
Belasco is preparing to leave for the coast about the first of June, 
with Lenore Ulric, to supervise personally the production of 
"Tiger Rose" her first picture under Warner Brothers contract. 

Belasco's capitulation to the screen is the most encouraging and 
significant circumstance that has ever happened to the once despised 
movies. Even the highbrows stand in awe of Belasco ; even the in- 
telligentsia look up to him ; even the obstreperous "young intellec- 
tuals" accord him respect. This is glorious news, and Warner Broth- 
ers are to be congratulated — however did they do it ?

Another important announcement is Glenn Hunter's five year con- 
tract with Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, which that favored 
child of fortune signed last month. His first picture for them will be 
"This Side of Paradise," F. Scott Fitzgerald's story of insurgent 
youth. Fitzgerald is scarcely more than a boy him- 
self and the two are great friends. 

Mary Astor, the most promising 
young girl of the screen and one 
of our own Fame and Fortune 
contest winners has also signed 
a Famous Player-Lasky 
contract. She is not yet 
of age and all sorts of 
legal difficulties had to

pair who have helped 
keep the Ziegfeld Fol-

to the tune of five thousand 
dollars a week or thereabouts. 
They will make five two reel com- 
edies and a five reel feature, each to 
be opened by Ed, with Al leading the 
orchestra, while verses from their 
famous song appear on the upper half 
of the screen. In the fall they expect 
to open in a musical comedy for Charles 
Dillingham called, "Stealing a Town." 
"Four leaf clovers, Mr. Gallagher. 
No, it's horseshoes, Mr. Shean."

mob of howling extras at his heels. 
When he reached the steps they 
crowded him so close in their excite- 
ment that in spite of his efforts to 
save her, Miss Davies fell to the 
platform striking her head with ter- 
rific force. She was unconscious 
for several minutes but when she 
came to, pluckily insisted upon con- 
tinuing the scene. Whereupon all 
the extras cheered and Wolheim 
saluted her gallantly. When you see

A YOUNG man strolled 
thru the smoking car. 
He was correctly 
clad, casual. At one glance 
he appeared to have a bear- 
ing of some fierce inner spir- 
itualness. At the next glance 
as equal a contradictory ap- 
pearance, of shrewd sophis- 
tication. Calculatedness. At 
both glances he appeared to 
be singularly attractive. 
Even compelling. During 
the cross-country trip one 

man had been watching him with a species of concentra- 
tion. This man was a detective. 

The young man strolled thru the smoking car. He 
left behind him a spiral trail of elegantly scented smoke. 
Expensive. When the trail thinned to faint blueness the 
famous detective arose, also casually, and strolled after 
him. He thought that he would confront him in the nar- 
row passageway between the smoker and the Pullman 
car. But he didn't confront him. When he emerged 
from the smoker into the passageway the young man had 
casually but completely disappeared. 

Fifteen minutes later, precisely, from a ditch by the 
railroad bed, where, precisely fifteen minutes before the 
Transcontinental had sped by, a young man emerged. 
He was the same young man as to face — almost. He 
was quite another young man as to garb. His tailored 
clothes had given way to a costume somewhat bastardly 
a mixture between that of a Pacific beachcomber and a 
holy man of somewhat uncertain orders. He carried a 
long staff and over his shoulder, a bundle. He strode 
immediately off toward a destination of which he ap- 
peared definite and certain. In the deep depths of his 
eyes glowed a flame which was focal and baffling. Two 
spots of red burned on the pallor of his face. Except 

The Madness 
of Youth 

for soft corners in his 

mouth he was ascetic. He 

walked a long ways, un- 
weariedly. . . . 

Told in Story Form 



The Bannings were quar- 
reling among themselves. 
They had exhausted most of 
the other worldly excite- 
ments, and really, as they 
would have' told you, the 
spiritual had no attraction 
for them, even if they had 
thought about them, and the mental occupied their minds 
not at all. 

Theodore P. Banning would have said of himself, in 
extenuation, that he had burned himself out as much as 
was good for a man in his fight for wealth. Well, he 
had obtained it. What then ? During the process, he 
had lost his wife in death, lost his son and daughter in 
life, and gained three obsessions. Which is as much, all 
in all, as most men do who go into the cold bowels of 
mankind to bring back soulless gold. 

His first obsession was the large iron-ribbed and steel- 
lined vault built just off the library of his pretentious 
Southern California residence. His wife had used to 
plead with him to bank it, but banks had failed him twice 
in his life, and he would have none of them. His son 
and daughter told him that one day he would be mur- 
dered and his safety vault looted, but he merely shrugged 
his shoulders. This potential catastrophe was beyond 
him. He wouldn't mind being murdered, he thought, if 
such should befall. 

His next obsession had to do with his two children, 
Theodore Jr., called Teddy, and Xanette, his daughter. 
They had been nice children. Once, when his wife was 
living, he had been wont to hear them say their goodnight 



prayers, had kist them goodnight, loving as much as he 
had rime, the urgent clinging of their damp, unall arms 
Bui the) didn't say theii prayers any longer, they knew 
better now , . and of course t lu-ir slim, strong arma 
had better use-, than to be about his leather] old neck 

. . But the) might, he pondered in bitterness, h 
shown him some filial respect, after he had amassed his 
glittering wealth for them. They might have been at 
■ respectful, 

["his third and la^t obsession h;i<! to do with the tenets 
of spiritualism. Everything else had failed him. Ever) 
"ii earth had failed him. Once they had all worn 
painted, alluring, laughing masks. Then they had torn 
the masks away, and lo, the grimacing faces that looked 
upon him ! Even his Teddy, sensual and cynical. Even 
his little Nanette, petulant, defeminized, hard like a 
young green apple. ... In spiritualism he was able, he 
thought, to talk with his dead wife. She was gentle with 
him. Sympathetic. She agreed with all Ids grievances 
and was sorry for him. What he was against she was 
against. He had lo pay vast sums of money to hear her 
speak so to him. but it was worth it to him. He believed 
in her. Rich men. too, must have their toys, nor nerd 
they ever know that they are broken. 

But today the Bannings were quarreling among them- 
selves. Ted had brought home from France a young 
French wife. She was delicately pretty and delicately 
built. Ted didn't seem to care for her as lie had. Al- 
most every day he made her cry. and when he saw her 
crying, with two red rims etched unbecomingly about her 
soft dark eves it 

couldn't be entertained sitting about this old dump like

served to make 
him angrier than 
ever. Today she 
was up in her 
room crying. 
Theodore P., 
senior, had heard 
her and had been 
with his son, 
which led him. in 
turn, to remon- 
strate with his 
daughter. Na- 
nette hadn't been 
home for a week 
before one or 
two in the morn- 
ing. Theodore P. 
wanted to know 
what the devil 
she meant by 
such carrying 
on ? What' did 
she think she 
was? Nanette 
sulkily replied 
that she had been 
with Pete Reyn- 
olds, that Pete 
was their "guest," 
and that he 

Javalie stood still. 
He heard his name 
called again, and 
the masked dancer 
stood before him 
stripping off her 
mask. "So you're 
here, Louise," he 
said without 





"You're some man, aren't you, Ted?" 

"You're some woman, aren't you, Nan?" 

And into such a garden walked the man of uncertain 
orders with the light burning in the deep depths of his 
eyes and the gnarled staff in his long and slender hands. 

Theodore P. removed his expensive cigar from his 
mouth. He sat up in his chair, straighter than the heat 
of the day rendered perfectly comfortable. "Well," he 
said, "who in hell are you? Where do you come from?" 

"I am from Everywhere," said the Stranger, "from 
the mountains, from the desert and the sea. From the 
high places and out of the low I am a symbol of that 
beneficent power that heals the wounds of the soul." 

"Oh, you are, are you?" 

"My name is Jaca Javalie. There is hatred and trouble 
in this house. Vipers coil and stir in a nest of brooding 
beauty. Father is armed against son, in his soul, and 
son against daughter. Why this has been revealed to 
me, I do not know. I want 
nothing. I do not take. T 
give. I give peace." 

This was spiritualistic 
stuff. Theodore P. sat 
more erect. He wanted to 
hear more. His spirit was 
sore disturbed and the 
strange man's singular 
words were like fresh 
waters. "So," he said, 
"you think we're in diffi- 
culties here, do you ?" 

"Yes," said the Stranger

Javalie stood before the 
older man and passed his 
hands over the grey head. 
"Then sleep," he began to 
intone, "sleep . t . . sleep 
. . . sleep. ..." Ban- 
ning relaxed and closed 
his eyes 

''And you think you 
can help us. How?" 

"By remaining with 
you for a few long 
hours. For a day or so. 
Simply by remaining 
with you. I can sleep 
in the open field and eat 
with the help in the 
outer places. My bed is 
beneath the stars as well 
as beneath silken cover- 

"You'll sleep indoors 
if you stay at all." 

"That shall be as you 
will it. I come to bring 

"Well, you've come 
none too soon." Theo- 
dore P., already more 
peaceful, perhaps be- 
cause momentarily ar- 
rested, lay back again in 
his long chair ; "we're 
very unhappy here," he 
said. The stranger in- 
clined his head. He 
seemed to be like a deep, 
cool well drawing from 
the air about him all 
that was poisonous and restless. Theodore P. found 
himself talking to the stranger, telling him things. . . . 
After awhile he rose and insisted upon his strange guest 
accompanying him to the house. They entered the library 
in the midst of which stood. Ted and his sister, still dis- 
puting a point which had. by now. become wholly ob- 
scured from its source. 

They stopped with the effect of clockwork when they 
saw their father with the stranger. "Where did you 
come from?" Nanette broke out, with her characteristic 
audacity. "Mars?" 

"Great Scott, Dad," laughed Ted, "what new curiosity 
have you unearthed ?" 

Theodore P. introduced Jaca Javalie, and the man 
spoke a few words to them. Suddenly, for the first time 
in many months, Ted felt adolescent and awkward. Like 
he had used to feel. And for the first time in even more 
months Nanette felt distinctly silly, and like making 

amends. The two young 
Bannings turned suddenly 

Ted bethought himself 
of poor, little Jeanne, cry- 
ing alone in her room. He 
ran up to get her down. 
While she was powdering 
her face and rearranging 
her hair Ted kist the back 
of her neck, impulsively. 
He hadn't done that in 
many months, either. 
Jeanne felt a little stab of 
a come-back happiness.

In the morning of the following day Nanette talked

came to him. alone. She was spiritually lovel) except 
for her hard young eyes. "You can fool Dad," she said, 
without preamble, "with your supernatural stuff. Rut 
you cant fool me." 

"But I dont want to fool you," Jaca Javalie said. And 
somehow in the moonlight his words ran with a clear 
conviction. No, Nanette knew, be didn't want to fool her. 

"You dont want to fool me." Nanette answered him, 
still with a vein of 
mockery, "because 
you're human . . '. 
not spiritual. Be-

and you're a man. 
That's w h y y o u

Jaca Javalie 
looked down on her 
and the light in his 
eyes burned more 
deeply, if less 
strangely. "That 
may be it." he said, 
"who can tell?"

Because she's so young and so clever; because she is head of the Department

"Tramping On Life," the frankest and most interesting 
self-revelations since Jean Jacques Rousseau and Marie 
Bashkirtseff. Not because he was called "The Tramp 
Poet" but because he was that. Because he has crowded 
into one short life, all the beauty and romance of poetry, 
all the flame and daring of adventure, all the poignant 
wisdom of bitter lessons learned ; and because he has 
crystallized this experience into a beautiful prose poem

KING Tut-ankh-Amen seems to have staged the grandest come-

William P. S. Earle, brother of the celebrated Ferdinand 
Pinney, is putting King Tut bodily into' the screen drama. For eight 
months, he has been making preparations for the play which is now 
being filmed at the Hollywood Studios, with Carmel Myers, June 
Elvidge, Malcolm MacGregor in the cast. Mr. Earle is said to 
have unearthed an actor heretofore unknown to the screen for King 
Tut himself. It is to be distinguished by the most extraordinary 

art effects yet seen on the screen.

Norma Talmadge is starting on the biggest produc- 
tion of her entire career. It is a French story called 
"The Ashes of Vengeance." It is expected to cost in 
the neighborhood of $700,000 ; there will be over 
$10,000 worth of swords alone. In the story Norma 
falls in love with a young nob'eman who, to save the 
life of a sister, has become the bonded servant of a rival. 
The peculiarity of the picture is that Norma does not 
appear until well along toward the middle of the pic- 
ture. In honor of the affair, Norma's devoted husband, 
Joseph Schenk has had a gorgeous dressing room built 
for her on the stage and a special bungalow in the studio 
for her to rest in.

Renee Adoree, after plugging along in pictures for 
several years, has suddenly burst out as a star of the 
most brilliant effulgence. Reginald Barker discovered 
her while making a big Canadian picture and considers 
her as the big "find" of the year. Miss Adoree was 

formerly a professional dancer and is the wife of Tom Moore. 

Jackie Coogan had to starve all during the making of Oliver Twist. 
He is now working in a picture in which he complains plaintively that 
they keep him stuffed to the muzzle with spaghetti all the time. 

Little Ben Alexander, who played the marvelous part in Griffith's "Hearts 
of the World" has come to light again. He is to be "Penrod" in a film 
version of "Penrod and Sam" directed by William Beaudine. He will be 
supported by a big cast which includes Irene Rich, William Mong, Rockliffe 
Fellows, Mary Philbin and Gareth Hughes. 

Baby Peggy also occupied the central part of the public eye for a time 

last week when she signed with Sol Lesser, the producer, for a series of 

feature pictures.

r OMEN who are exceptionally critical about 
a manicure should "do" their nails the Cutex 
way. For, this new method of manicuring not only 
eliminates all dangerous and disfiguring cutting of the 
cuticle, but it leaves the finger tips soothed and com- 
forted, the nails immaculate and lovely. 

Moreover, the Cutex way of manicuring is quick 
and easy. It takes but five or ten minutes once or 
twice a week. 

You just dip an orange-wood stick wrapped with 
cotton in Cutex Cuticle Remover (a cleansing, anti- 
septic liquid developed by Science for the care of the 

nails), work it under the nail tips and around the base 
of the nails, gently pressing back the cuticle. Then, 
rinse the finger tips in water, and wipe them off. Now, 
examine the nails closely, and you will see that every 
tiny flake of dead skin has disappeared, ugly stains 
have vanished, and the nail rim is thin, even, and 
beautifully shaped. 

Then — for a Jewel-like Polish 

Of Culex Polishes there are 6ve — the paste, cake, stick, 
powder, and liquid forms. All give a brilliant, lasting lustre 
and that rose-pearl glow approved by Fashion as the smart 
finish to a manicure. Obtainable at all drug stores in the 
United Stales and Canada, and at chemist shops in England. 


New Cutex Powder 

A scented, rosee powder 
of velvet smoothness that 
gives a dazzling lustre. No 
buffer required. Just a few 
strokes of the nails across 
the palm bring out a full 
and brilliant polish that lasts 
for many days. In the at- 
tractive rose and black Cutex 
package. Price, 35c.

Katinka From Chaiive-Souris 

The most original and popular show of the past season in 
New York was the "Chauve-Souris," that glorified 
Russian vaudeville that has set everyone to humming 
the March of the Wooden Soldiers. Now Herbert 
Brennon has re-created a bit of it for the screen. Just 
have patience and you can see for yourself what it is like. 
He has interpolated the Katinka episode pictured here

An assortment of celebrities adorns "Wandering Daugh- 
ters" now being made at the United Studios. Among 
them are Craig Biddle, the young Philadelphia millionaire ; 
Lyman T. Gage, Jr., son of the former secretary of the 
Treasury ; Princess Waldemar Valkonsky of Russia, 
Antonio Rolando, son of a millionaire newspaper owner 
of South America. 

It is said that Erich Von Stroheim threatened to throw 
up his contract with Goldwyn if he couldn't have Zazu 
Pitts as his leading lady in McTeague which is to be 
made from the Frank Norris novel. Consequently Zazu 
is to have the part. 

Hollywood in the screening — directors, authors, producers 
etc. One is Rupert Hughes' "Souls for Sale" and the 
other "Hollywood and the Favorite Child," made on the 
Lasky lot. The latter story is a yarn by Frank Condon 
about a selfish flapper daughter who dragged out her 
whole family from Iowa to Hollywood so she could get 
into pictures : after they got here, every one of her 
family except herself got a studio job. 

Fred Niblo is having a ship yard employing 200 men 
built for his forthcoming pirate picture "Captain Apple- 
jack." In the course of the picture he will use a whole 
fleet of boats — four schooners, two brigs and a frigate. 
Among the actors who will take part in the picture will 
be Enid Bennett, Robert McKim, Thos. Ricketts and 

Matt Moore.

A Happy Last Touch 

When you use the Pompeian Beauty 
Trio you can feel assured that your 
skin is always fresh and glowing, and 
that it will remain so almost indef- 

Pompeian Day Cream is a vanish- 
ing cream that is absorbed by the skin, 
protecting it from dust, wind and sun. 
The delicate film that remains on the 
surface after the Day Cream has dis- 
appeared holds powder and rouge so 
well that constant re-powdering is un- 

Pompeian Beauty Powder is of so 
soft and fine a texture that it goes on 
smoothly and evenly. A light coating 
will last a long time; for this powder 
has, to a remarkable degree, the qual- 
ity of adhering. 

The Bloom is a rouge that is abso- 
lutely harmless. It comes in the de- 
sired shades — light, medium, dark, 
and orange tint. 

Use the Pompeian Trio together for 
Instant Beauty; for great care has 
been taken that all Pompeian Prep- 
arations blend perfectly. 

Remember, first the Day Cream, 
next the Beauty Powder, then a touch 
of Bloom, and over all another light 
coating of the Powder.

I was so indignant that for a moment I

To make the best of herself is the con- 
ceded duty of every woman, \oung or old; 
and a modish gown means very little when 
her complexion is uncared for. 

"Come here," I aaid to her, "and let 
me see what I can do for you."

patting it into the skin. This was I'

to only one side of her face! 

I turned her around to face the mirror. 
You never saw anyone so surprised! She 
looked and looked, turning from side to

entirely different girls, and one was so 
much lovelier it seemed incredible. 

"That is what you can make of your- 
self every day, and it will take only a lew 
minutes," I told her. 

I couldn't help laughing at her aston-

could be so pretty. She realized now the 
mistake she had been making, and w atched 
with the keenest interest, while 1 made 
the other side of her face just as charming, 
adding at the last a touch of Pompeian 
Lip Stick. 

She didn't say very much, but all the 
afternoon I saw her eyes straying I 
the mirror. I hoped then that she would 
profit by my little lesson, and I know now 
that she did, lor I've never seen her look-

the advantages of real ballet training under this great master. Anyone can

Marinoff system. Merriell Abbott, Director of the Abbott Dancers [Chicagc

by this system." Marinoff training includes a complete outfit — a studio bar, 
practice costume, slippers, phonograph records and sheet music. This is fur- 
nished to every Marinoff student without charge.

As tantalizingly feminine as the sub'

carries each day the impression that he 
left at home that morning the most charm- 
ing, cheery, freshly gowned woman in the

leen Moore with Vitagraph. Richard Bar- 
thelmess was born in New York in 1897. 
Baby Peggy is with Century Comedies, 
Los Angeles, Cal. 

Jane Acer. — Leatrice Joy is married to 
Jack Gilbert, and her last picture was 

Grace D. — The popular belief that it is 
unlucky to spill the salt probably orig- 
inated from Leonardo da Vinci's picture 
of "The Last Supper," in which Judas 
Iscariot is represented as spilling the salt. 
Or da Vinci may have so painted it to 
embody in his picture a -then popular super- 
stition. A gift of bread and salt was a 
token of friendship; salt was a sign of 
amity ; so spilling a man's salt may have 
betokened enmity. Enough about that. 
Lloyd Hughes with Ince. Clara Young 
does not give her age. 

L. M. L. — Thanks. I am glad you trust

By Margaret Mayfield 

I'm not 

Particularly beautiful, charming or wise, 

B"t when I asked you why you loved me, 

\ ou said : Because you are 

Adorably pretty, charming and wise ! 

I wonder why? 

It was a pity 
no one told him 

HI", was an honor man in his class at college — popular 
with every one — giving promise of carving his notch 
high up on the ladder of success. 
An unusual business opportunity came his way shortly 
after he was out of school — better than most young men are 
fortunate enough to secure. He certainly started out with 
a bang. Every one remarked about it. 

• • * F| ve years passed. Howard Chapman, who had set out 
so brilliantly, was still almost precisely at the point where he 
started. Other young men' who hadn't nearly his opportunity had 
out-distanced him each year. 

What invisible thing was it that held Chapman back? Some 
of his closer friends undoubtedly knew but didn't have the heart 
to tell him. It was really a pity. 

That's the insidious thing 
about halitosis (unpleasant 
breath). You. yourself, rarely 
know when you have it. And 
even your closest friends won't 
tell you. . 

Sometimes, of course, halitosis 
comes from some deep-seated 
organic disorder that requires 
professional advice. But usually 
— and fortunately — halitosis is 
only a local condition that yields 
to the regular use of I.isterine 
as a mouth-wash and gargle. 

It is. an interesting thing thai this 
well known ant- his been 

in use for yeari for surcica' dress- 
ings, possesses these peculiar i roper- 
ties as a breath deodorant. It halts 
food fermentation in the mouth and 
leaves the breath sweet, t'resh and 
clean. So the s\stem.itic use of 
I.isterine puts you on the safe and 
te side. You know your breath 
is right. Fastidious people every- 
where are m;ikmg it a regular

A Patricia in poke bonnet and 
frilled gown was hard to deal with. 
A trembling girl who told her ex- 
traordinary story truthfully and tear- 
fully managed to move the Town 
Council more than it would have in- 
dividually been willing to admit. A 
timid fluttering bit of femininity who 
sat beside and held the hand of the 
man whose fortune she had Stolen 
presented an ethical problem that was 
too much for the Town Council. Its 
moral sense had been outraged. Some- 
tiling assuredly must be clone. 

But what? 

Finally old John Jacob Astor came 
to the rescue of the Town Council's 
dilemma. Larry and Pat — er — Miss 
Patricia would better take a trip to 
England until things blew over. He 
personally would see that there was a 
minister on the boat to marry them. 
Larry and Patricia looked at each 
other in joyous surprise. This was 
the best news in the world for them. 

Later, in Patricia's own garden — 
rather Larry's own garden — or — er — 
that is — Larry's and Patricia's gar- 
den, Patricia murmured something 
about the luck of the Irish. "And 
anyway," she added, "the money is 
just as much mine now, as tho it was 
really mine." 

Which cryptic utterance Larry 
seemed to understand very well, be- 
cause he said, "Perfectly right Paddy

guished high-salaried scenario writ- 
of the motion picture industry 
"The) will nol lei an author tell a 
j that is like lif< 
"But would the public like real life 
as it really is?" 

"I wonder," Gloria mused. And 
then she added. "Of course they 
wouldn't believe it. 
wouldn't believe it myself. 

"For instance there is my director. 
Sam Wood. The other night he was 
held up on the street by some ban- 
dits. One of them poked a revolver 
against Ids ribs and told him to 
throw up his hands. Sam said they 
could kill him if they wanted to but 
he'd be darned if he would throw 
up his hands. Could you make any- 
body believe that on the screen — a 
young fellow with every brilliant 
promise in life, ready to die rather 
than to hold his hands up over his 
head? The bandit couldn't believe it 
himself apparently, lie ran away. 

"Just so. yon see every actress 
on the screen make wild clutching 
gestures in moments of great trag- 
edy. Of course that is contrary to 
nature. Fear, terror, dismay are all 
emotions that contract. If you are 
really and truly terrified you cant 
scream: your throat contracts. Your 
shoulders sort of hunch into your 
body : yon grow small : you shrink,

tenced to be "hanged. lie didn't do

acted like an embarrassed boy who 
has to speak on Friday afternoon at 
the high school, lie had a dinky lit- 
tle hat which he kept fingering in the 
most careful and painstaking way. 
When it was over, he slid back into 
his seat as tho being hanged didn't 
matter so much if he didn't have to 
stand up in the presence of a crowd. 
"Some daw 1 imagine, some great 
screen genius will come along and 
discard all these conventionalized 
methods with one gesture." 

"At that." said Gloria, with a sud- 
den change oi tone. "I want t 
on the speaking stage some day." 
"So that's the big ambition'" 
"The big ambition is twins." said 
Gloria. "1 want to be a great actress 
in plays that have words and I want 
to lie a really successful mother. If 
you could see that baby of mine, 
you would realize that she is my 
masterpiece. She is the sweetest . . ." 
But when these young mothers 
start like that, experience teaches us 
that it is high time to look at the 
watch and hustle back to the studio.

Half Chinese and Wholly 

{Continued from page 41) 

half caste children. Somehow or 
other, she met the wife of a movie 
director at a party and . . . Well, 
of course, you can guess the rest. 

"'Say something in Chinese," I 

"I — I cant, I dont know any." 

"You ought to be ashamed of 

"I am." 

And then she explained. "I used 
to speak Chinese when I was a child, 
but somehow I got out of the way 
of it. I am awfully proud of my 
Chinese blood tho. It gives me a 
little thrill of pride when I hear some 
one say: 'She looks Chinese.' 

"It seems to me sometimes as tho 
I were two persons. Especially when 
1 get angry. My mind seems to be 
French and I get all stirred up. Then 
way clown in my soul something old 
and oriental seems to say to me 
"There, there, child, it doesn't matter ; 
nothing matters.' And I calm down 
again. It seems as tho the European 
side of my nature kept suggesting 
things for me to do and the Chinese 
part of me sat in critical, calm judg- 
ment on the project." 

"Everything in the world seems to 
have been discovered by the Chinese. 
I suppose they had motion pictures a 
couple of million years before we ever 
heard of them," I suggested. 

She laughed. "Well I wouldn't say 
that ; but it is true that my father's 
people were telling stories in the mo- 
tion picture way when your father's 
people were wandering around killing 
animals with their hands and tearing 
the raw meat with their teeth." 


"Well," she answered. "Telling 
stories by pictures is merely getting 
back to the realms of suggestive art. 
That is to say, discarding words 
which are an impediment to the im- 
agination of the hearer. The Chinese 
have been telling stories that way for 
countless ages. For instance, Chinese 
poetry eliminates this clutter of 
words. A Chinese poem will only 
indicate the symbols upon which the 
imagination is to fasten itself. A 
poem will read like this: 

"A tower 

"A dark lake 

"A Woman's face at a window 

"Villain lurking in shadow. 

"Lover with lute, etc. etc. 

"If that isn't what they call 'Pic- 
ture stuff' then I dont know what is!" 

What I answered was, "fust in- 

What I was thinking was, "Girl, 
if you aren't picture stuff, then I 
dont know what is."

right side of the fence, despite my 
questionable personality, I trusl my 
audiences will be more kindly in 
their thoughts of me." 

\t this time Mr. Torrence is 
working with Lon Chanej in "The 
Hunchback of Notre Dame," at the 
Universal studios. This will l>e a 
mammoth production and will keep 
liim bus) for months. In this picture, 
our erst-while comedian will be seen 
as a king of the Paris underworld. 

"I wouldn't return to the speaking 
stage— or to the East, for worlds," 
laughed this versatile giant. "We 
are building our home here now, out 
at the end of Hollywood Boulevard 
just ;i- you enter beautiful Laurel 
Canyon, and where the gorgeous 
mountains will greel us continually. 
Outside of my work at the studios, 
my <mly interests are home, my 
piano, nn golf, and my family. We 
indeed a happy three." 

Then 1 was introduced to "num- 
ber three," Ian (O.K.) Torrence, a 
sturdy lad of fifteen who will soon 
be as unbelievably tall and firmly 
knit as his father. 

Mr. Torrence is a native of Edin- 
burgh, Scotland. Following years 
of study in piano and voice at Stutt- 
gart, Germany, he taught music in 
his home town. Then came further 
study at the Royal Academy of 
Music. London, where he was 
awarded the Westmoreland scholar- 
ship, and a gold medal for opera. 

It was following this training he 
began his stage career in comic 
opera, and appeared in the last work 
of the famous Sir Arthur Sullivan, 
just prior to that writer's death. For 
ten years he played at the Savoy. 
Lyric, Gaiety, and Adelphi theaters 
in London and in the provinces. In 
1911 he came to America. 

"Those ten years were rilled with 
hard work, many disheartening ex- 
periences, and utter misery at times." 
Mr. Torrence said dreamily. But 
my coming to America brought great 
luck. My first appearance in this 
country was for Al Woods, in 'The 
Only Girl,' and 'The Night Boat.' I 
was with the latter when I got my 
chance for pictures." 

So when you see Ernest Torrence 
again, tho he may be cruel to the 
"nth" degree, remember the many 
steps he has taken to reach his goal. 
First as a musician, then a singer, an 
actor, a comedian, and now a heavy. 
Admire him for his perseverance 
and undaunted ambition, which 
nothing could kill, even tho it landed 
him in the hardest role of his life. 

O. yes indeed. "One may smile 
and smile, and be a villain !" 




You Must Fight 

The film on teeth, or you may suffer 

Under old brushing methods, few 
escaped tooth troubles. Beautiful teeth 
were seen less often than now. 

In fact, tooth troubles constantly in- 
creased — became alarming in extent. 
That's what led to this new method, 
which has brought to millions a new 
dental era. 

Those dingy coats 

That viscous film you feel on teeth 
is their chief enemy. 
It clings to teeth, 
enters crevices and 
stays. Food stains, 
etc., discolor it. Then 
it forms dingy coats. 
Tartar is based on 
film. That's why teeth 
lose luster. 

Avoid Harmful Grit 

Pepsodent ctutHes the film and 
removes it without harmful 
gcourintr- lt~ polishing acrenl is 
tax softer than enamel. Never 
usea Mini combatant » hlch con- 
tains harsb irrit. 

Film also holds 
food substance which ferments and 
forms acids. It holds the acids in con- 
tact with the teeth to cause decay. 
Germs breed by millions in it. They, 
with tartar, are the chief cause of 
pyorrhea. Thus most tooth troubles 
are now traced to film. 

Almost universal 

Film-coated teeth were almost univer- 
sal. The ordinary tooth paste could not 
effectively combat film. So dental science 
set out to find effective film combatants. 

Two methods were developed. One 
acts to curdle film, one to remove it, 
without any harmful scouring. 

Able authorities proved these meth- 
ods effective. Then a new-type tooth 
paste was created, based on modern 
research. These two great film com- 
batants were embodied in it. 

The name of that tooth paste is Pep- 
sodent, which leading dentists of some 
50 nations are advising now. 

Fights acids too 

Pepsodent also 
multiplies the alka- 
linity of the saliva. 
That is there to neu- 
tralize mouth acids, 
the cause of tooth 

It multiplies the 
starch digestant in the saliva. That is 
there to digest starch deposits which 
may otherwise ferment and form acids.

him, stripping off her mask. "I 
wondered what had become of you," 
she said. "So you're here, Louise." 
Javalie spoke without surprise. The 
dancer nodded. "Yes, I'm here. What 
are you going to do about it ? After 
all, Jaca, did you suppose that you 
could do what you did do to me 
without ever hearing of it again?" 

"What do you consider that I 
'did' to you?" 

"The writers of fiction would say 
that you had broken my heart. As 
I probably have none, you have 
merely made me hate yen." She 
laughed, mockingly. ( How differ- 
ent from the delicate mockery of 
Nanette!) "How funny you look 
in your religious rags !" she said. 
"How funny it will be when I tell 
them who you really are !" 

Javalie leaned toward her. 
"Please," he said, "dont do that. 
I've been waiting three years for this 
chance. Dont spoil it. If I'm suc- 
cessful', and T will be if you will help 
me, I'll divide with you . . . I'll . .* . 
I'll go away and marry you . . . 
only let me get the money in that

going to speak to the guests. I want 
in make my final effect. They be- 
lieve you a famous vampire. Help 
me . . . pretend that you are a 
convert to my spiritual fervor. 
Think, Louise, money and a far 
country . . . think!" 

Louise looked at him, narrowly. 
If be had been thinking of her per- 
sonally he would have seen that he 
was safe. There was love of him in 
her eyes. She nodded. "All right," 
she said, "speak your little speech, 
Jaca, and I'll pretend that you've 
saved my soul." 

Javalie spoke to them. He stood 
on the balcony with the summer 
winds ruffling his sacerdotal rags and 
the moonlight encircling his head 
like a halo. He told them he was 
speaking, not of religion but appeal- 
ing to their better selves, to the spir- 
its that lived in their bodies, to their 
hearts. . . . The faces looking at 
him were stirred and strange when 
be had finished. Old Theodore P. 
Banning kept clearing his throat. 
Nanette shifted from one foot to the 
other and her eyes ceased their 
mi H-king and became tender and ab- 
sorbed. Under cover of the rose- 
bushes Ted moved nearer to his wife 
and was silent while she told him her 
sweet secret. And at the very end 
the beautiful dancer stepped from 
the »roup and knelt beneath the bal- 
cony where- Javalie stood. "I want 
lo ask forgiveness of my sins," she 

pleaded. She could have had no 
more emotion if she had been in 
earnest. What an actress she was, 
Javalie thought, and his fine lips 

The Banning estate was quiet with 
sleep. Theodore P. alone was awake, 
sitting in his library pondering the 
events of the evening. To him came 
the holy man. Javalie. "Why dont 
you go to bed?" be asked his host, 
"you look tired . . . worn." Ban- 
ning nodded. "I am," he said. Javalie 
stood before the older man and 
passed his hands over the grey head. 
"Then sleep," he began to intone, 
"sleep . . . sleep . . . sleep . . ." 
Banning relaxed and closed his eyes. 
When his breathing was quiet and 
his hands limp Javalie took him by 
his arm and led him softly to the 
great vault in the other room. "Open 
this," he commanded and, automat- 
ically, perfectly, Banning obeyed. 
As he did so. Javalie jotted down the 
combination in a note-book and then, 
as quietly, led the tranced man back 
to his chair. 

Javalie's mission in the Banning 
home was complete. Where was the 
victory? Where the wine of tri- 
umph ? 

As be turned to leave the room, 
the older Banning being now relaxed 
into normal, quiet slumber, he found 
Pete Reynolds waiting for him. "So 
that's your game, is it?' he asked. 



so. I've been 

watching you. 

Javalie nodded. "A crook/' he 
said. "yes. One of the best. Are 
you going to spill the beans?" 

"I might not." Reynolds said, "for 
a — consideration." 

The two men entered into an 
agreement, and Javalie promised to 
have the money extracted within 
twenty-four hours. 

The only person who did not sleep 
in the Banning home that night was 
Jaca Javalie. The only man who 
could find no peace was the man who 
had brought peace to the household. 

Tn the morning Ted came to his 
father and told him that he was go- 
ing away with his wife to work for 
her with his own hands. Javalie 
had showed him what he was doing, 
he said. He wanted to "begin 
again ..." He thought that he 
could. Old Theodore P. took his 
grown son info his arms and kist him 
as he bad not done since Ted was a 
boy. "I'll build you a house, son." 
he said, "and you can start in that."

NoWonder Rouge Never Gave 
a Natural Color ! 

But at last Science has solved the \ 
baffling Secret of Nature's own 
lovely flush / 

SCIENCE now discloses thai no 
known shade of purplish red — 
the familiar color of rouge— can 
ever duplicate Nature's perfect ar- 
tistry. Xo matter how skilfully rouge 
IS applied, the task is impossible. 

In creating the wonderful new 
Princess Pat Natural Tint, the ureal 
handicap of rouge came to lii/ht ! The 
startling discovery was made that to 
obtain perfect results, such as Nature 
gives, the color used iiu<si positively 
change upon the skin after it is ap- 
plied. Xo wonder, then, that rouge 
never gave a natural color! 

No more amazing development has ever 
been accomplished in beauty's name than 
the finding of Princess Pat Tint. No 
more fascinating story has ever been told 
than the long search by a famous English 
Scientist for the mysterious "X-Tint" 
which should duplicate Mature. 

Like many gr°at discoveries, chance 
gave the inspiration and a happy accident 
brought about the final triumph. Chance 
led the famous creator of Princess Pat 
Tint to banteringly criticize the tell-tale 
rouge upon the cheeks of a feminine 
acquaintance. She in turn challenged her 
critic to use his vast store of know! 
to produce something better. Thus ;i 
scientist turned his hand to a task which 
had baffled the cosmetician since rouge was 
first used. 

Search was made first for some actual, 
definite color, which would simulate the 
marvelous beauty of Nature's handiwork 
when the cheek is divinely mantled with 
soft pink and creamy white. Time after 
time the attempt was made to perfect 
ordinary rouge, to so modify the familiar 
purplish red that it would appear natural. 
But with every resource of science avail- 
able, the effort proved futile. 

Rut the scientist worked on, with his 
assistant the subject for experimentation. 
Casting aside red tints as impossible, hun- 

dreds of differ- 
ing shadings of 

were used. Many 
were an improvement, 

but none perfect. 

Then accident step- 
ped in, and bj 
chance a rare and 
costly ingredient was 
nied. The result was 
an unknown shade of 
delicate orange, beau- 
tiful indeed, but nol the color one would 
ordinarily select to match Nature's per 
feet complexion. 

Idly enough, this new shade was tried 
upon the assistant's cheeks. And then a 
wonderful thing happened, Instantly the 
coloring underwent a subtle alteration. The 
orange tint changed upon the shin! The 
scientist exclaimed in amazement! For be- 
neath his startled gaze there had appeared 
the absolute perfection of Nature's own 
coloring, the blending of delicate pink and 
white that marks the transparent beauty of 
the famous English Complexion. The amaz- 
ing "Million Dollar Beauty Secret," Prin- 
cess Pai Tint, had at last been discovered. 

Princess Pat Tint Is Waterproof ! 

Still the scientist was not satisfied. He 
determined to make this new tint water- 
proof. And such wonderful success at- 
tended his efforts that one may actually 
go in bathing without the slightest impair-

The Madness of Youth 

(Continued from page 78) 

In his room Javalie was reading a 
note from the dancer, Louise. She 
told him that the joke was on her. 
That last night, in the garden as she 
had knelt at his feet, the game had 
suddenly become reality to her. The 
words she had meant to say with her 
lips had come, somehow, from her 
heart. "She was going away, back to 
her own people. ..." 

Javalie was strangely shaken. His 
two natures rose and fought within 
him. He had, like Louise, come to 
this house to play a skilfully con- 
trived role, and lo, like Louise, too, 
the role had become reality. These 
people had accepted him. His ex- 
hortations had come true. He felt 
suddenly defiant. He would shake 
off this weakness, this softness, that 
had come to him as to the whole 
household. He went unsteadily from 
his own room to the vault room. 
The family were in the garden. He 
would accomplish his mission and 
steal away. It would all be over, the 
moonlight, Nanette . . . 

The vault room was heavy with 
silence. He had the combination 
clearly before him, but somehow the 
room revolved. He couldn't seem 
to see very well, to stand very firmly. 
He gave a little moan and fell to the 
ground in a sorry heap. 

When he came to, he was in Na- 
nette's arms. The elder Banning was 
standing over them. Young Ted was 
speaking. "A common thief." he 
said, "I'll phone for the police. Dad." 
But Nanette held him closer. "Dad," 
she cried, "Why, Dad, dont you sec? 
In saving our souls, he has saved his

I have not very much to say about 
Italy as iu> changes of particular in 
teres! have happened there since I 
wrote my last article. If I tell you 
what I have seen during my different 
visits to that country you may judge 
better what the situation is. 

1 it us >tart with Rome, some 
months ago, just when we heard that 
the second industry in Italy was pic- 
ture production. Let us enter a shop 
called "< Md England" and go to the 
top Hour where one can get tea and 
other refreshments. At the time of 
which I am speaking we could find 
mbled at different tables pro- 
ducers, artistes and other cinema fans. 
Let us approach a table, by chance, 
and be indiscreet and hear what is 

./ producer. — I dont know what to 

do. Miss X (here the name of 

a well-known artiste) has promised 
to appear in one of my pictures and 
when I told her that 1 had reserved 
for her the role of the girl who be- 
comes old she refused to play. And 
yet the role is a first class one. She 
replied: "Well, 1 always want the 
public to see me young and not old." 
And do you know, old chap, con- 
tinued the producer, the oldest part 
she will take in the picture does not 
give her true age. She is to play 

Miss F in my film and appear 

thirty-five and she is now. well, I 
think she must be nearly forty. 

Another producer. — Well you can 
arrange that. Try to make your 
heroine twenty-five instead of thirty- 
five and things will he settled. But 
what about me? My leading lady 
left me and she has formed her own 
company, do you understand? It is 
not a question of age. 

Now. my dear reader, let us leave 
our tea shop as we have heard enough, 
in fact, more than we could learn by 
many visits to the studios and better 
than by interviewing many people. 

Before the war. Germany had al- 
ready some good stars. Among these 
was Asta Neilsen an artiste who was 
said to be of Danish origin. She ap- 
peared principally in German films 
and made wonderful creations, one of 
her best successes being "The Down- 
fall." What I remember of this film 
which I saw more than ten years ago.

is that it was the story of a stage 
actress or dancer. 

Now, I understand that a new film 
has been made which has the same 
name and which tells us the story 
of a young actress whose first hus- 
band has been very cruel to her and 
who falls to such a low state that she, 
who was once a beautiful woman, is 
not even recognized by the man she 
loves after some years during which 
she has been separated from him. I 
do not think this to be the plot of 
"The Downfall" which I saw before 
the war, but it has a certain likeness.

a sea tramp. But he happened to get 
started on Western stories and made 
such a success that the public will not 
accept him in any other kind of 
stories. So that's that. 

Monte Blue wants to be a director. 
Every time he gets out in front of a 
camera, his heart aches with longing 
to be on the other side of the instru- 
ment telling some inspired actor how 
to do it. 

Helen Ferguson wants to be a short 
story writer with her name adver- 
tised in the magazines. It might be 
that she will fulfil her ambition. 

Marie Mousquini, down at the 
Harold Lloyd studio, has a curious 
jambition. She wants to be a busi- 
ness woman. She never had the 
^.lightest idea of being an actress. She 
got a job in the business department 
of the Roach studios and she was so 
pretty and attractive and general col- 
orful and had so much personality that 
they dragged her away by main force 
and put her in front of a camera. 
She never has gotten over the han- 
kering to be a business young lady 
with a lot of carol index stuff lying 
around — a stenographer — no not a 
stenographer, probably a dictograph 
— at her elbow — sales charts with col- 
ored pins and all such junk. 

Charley Ray wants to be a producer 
of stage plays. His movie career is 
just a stepping stone to Broadway. 
Some day he will be a David Belasco 
with a wistful, sad smile and teaming 
millions trying to get into his theater. 

Jackie Coogan endures fame and 
wealth because he knows that he still 
has time enough before him to gain 
his life's ambition which is to be a 
fireman. Not just an ordinary fire- 
man tho. Jackie aims high. He will 
be satisfied with no other station in 
life except to be the fireman who sits 
up in the poop deck of a hook and 
ladder wagon and steers the machine 
down thru the traffic, making all the 
limousines climb up on the sidewalk 
to get out of the way.

"Now 1 know what T am talking 
about," said Mr. Bushman with con-

little towns on our vaudeville tours. 
We came in contact with all these 
people. They all knew us — from pic- 
tures. It was beautiful to me. 

"Why, these housewives that were 
never out of their own kitchens learn

They acquire a very workahle set of

that I think that the motion picture 
is the greatest force in the world. 
I believe it has a message to bring 
to all peoples. And I am glad and 
proud to be a part of it." 

Xow we know that most of these 
things have been said before, but we 
have never heard them said with such 
a ring of conviction, sincerity and 
truth. Somehow, when Francis X. 
Bushman told us these things, they 
took on a new vitality. We believed 
them. We suddenly became enthusi- 
astic about our job. We wanted to 
make our magazine bigger and better. 
Yes, we truly did. And we too. were 
glad and proud to be a part of this 
great industry. 

Surely if a man can do that, can 
manage to lift a job out of the hum-

consecration to an ideal, to imbue 
others with a new purpose, then 
surely there will he a place for him

The Celluloid Critic 

(Continued from page 47) 

RUPERT HUGHES lias taken 
his magazine story, "Souls for 
"Sale" (Goldwyn), and given it a 
screen dressing and we must hand this 
gifted author and director credit for 
fashioning a picture which takes the 
spectator on a fanciful flight thru 
filmland. Mr. Hughes has assembled 
over thirty players, many of whom 
are headliners, and piloted them 
around Hollywood sets. He gives us a 
large close-up of studio activities — of 
the lives of the screen gentry on loca- 
tion. And while he shoots his scenes 
he waxes satirical in his titles. Yet 
beneath the humorous surface is the 
story of the rise to stardom of a girl 
who stumbled upon a company mak- 
ing a "sheik" picture. She had run 
away from a criminal husband. 

Mr. Hughes would have us believe 
that his tale is typical of the manner 
in which a star is made. But the 
atmosphere is the most important fea- 
ture of the play and one is allowed 
to get an eye-ful of the directors, 
Stroheim, Niblo, Neilan and Chaplin. 
Chaplin? Indeed, the King of 
Comedy is caught for a brief moment 
with the megaphone. The climax 
ushers in a thrilling chapter culled 
from the circus formula. 

The story becomes artificial toward 
its conclusion and the cast is too large 
to allow any individual player's study 
to be absorbed by the spectator. Yet 
"Souls for Sale" is interesting be- 
cause of its novelty and the humorous 
twists — to say nothing of the atmos- 
pheric touches. 

WE turn to Pola Negri who 
looks almost like a new dis- 
covery in Paramount's "Bella 
Donna." Having the advantage of 
American methods of screen techni- 
calities, she is able to display a charm 
which was lost in German produc- 
tions. So miich for Yankee lighting 
and photography. The picture em- 
bellishes her emotional gifts so that 
she appears to be a different person- 
ality entirely. Yet it may be that her 
art is so limitless in expression that 
each new picture brings out some 
heretofore hidden appeal. 

It is a sumptuous production — a 
positive revelation from a scenic 
standpoint. George Eitzmaurice has 
achieved the well-nigh impossible 
task of creating a genuinely atmos- 
pheric Egypt, London and Venice — 
so much so, that nothing of the studio

startle them out of their ennui. 

But they have a new thrill now! 

Men and women who have dieted and 
drugged themselves, who have ennervated 
their systems in Turkish Rooms, who have 
poured pounds of so-called reducing salts 
in their baths, who have jumped around 
in violent exercises that played havoc with 
their hearts — 

— these folks have found a thrill! 

They have found that getting thin is a matter ol 
moments. No apparatus is required. It can all be done 
in the quiet of one's own bathroom! They have dis- 
red Slendaform, the harmless amaiing liquid 
cream that melts away the fat-cells and reduces fatty 
areas almost immediately, with only external 

Cleo Madison, noted screen beauty, took off sev- 
eral inches in a brief treatment, and is now on the 
way back toCalifornia with six jars of Slendaform for 
some of her triends. George Trimble, important 
officer of the Actors Equity Association who always 
wore a 19' .. collar, now wears an 18. He also reduced 

?."' '"eh" in the waist. Frank W. Goodale says. 
Results are astounding. They are visible after few 

A certain famous actress, upon being refused the 
opportunity to play the character of the debutante 
in anew film, used Slendaform and returned to the 
studio. The director was surprised, delighted, and 
gave her the coveted part.

Why this sudden leap in public sales? 

It works i. That is the reason ! You simply pat it on 
the part \ou wish to reduce and the fat melts away. 
It is almost magical in its accomplishment. 

Money Back Quarantee 

If, aftet using Slendafoim according to the simple 
directions on each jar, you arc unable to see results, 
we cheerfully refund your money in full. 

No offer could be fairer than this; it is proof posi-

All druggists are now being supplied, but it will

up with the demand. In the meantime if you want 
a jar or two you mav have to send direct to the New

The Celluloid Critic 

(Continued from page 84) 

against such a colorful background — * 
a background which abounds in 
elaborate carnival scenes, desert sand- 
storms and massive reproductions uf 
oriental architecture. A gripping 
document which is dramatically effec- 
tive and optically pleasing and finely 
interpreted by the star and a company 
that has seemingly caught some of her 
verve and vitality. 

RUPERT HUGHES is not the 
only sponsor of screen novelties 
' for the month. He must make 
room for Maurice Tourneur whose 
production, "The Isle of Lost Ships" 
(First National), stimulates the im- 
agination and excites the pulse with 
its fanciful story of adventure, con- 
flict and romance in the Sargasso Sea 
— where all floating wreckage drifts 
to find sanctuary. The corpses of 
these dead vessels lend an uncanny 
atmosphere which is rich in its color- 
ful appeal. Human derelicts find 
refuge among them — the sole sur- 
vivors of ill-fated cruises. 

It is stark melodrama punctuated 
with fanciful adventure and romance 
and the acting contributed by Milton 
Sills, Walter Long and other com- 
petent players is in perfect harmony 
with the vigorous tale. 

IN turning to Jackie Coogan we dis- 
cover him in a trite, hackneyed 
story "Daddy" (First National), 
which is worthy of patronage, how- 
ever, because of the presence of the 
inimitable youngster. Follow little 
John thru his tender moments with an 
aged musician and shed a tear over 
him. There is no backbone to the plot 
and it's unduly artificial featuring as 
it does a mother who leaves her tem- 
peramental husband and takes her 
child with her. Follow Jackie thru his 
efforts to get his grandparents out of 
the poorhouse as he parades the city 
streets begging silver with his elo- 
quent eyes and his violin playing. The 
elderly musician, the tutor of the lad's 
father, dies. Which offers a moment 
of heart interest and pathos. And the 
parent conveniently meets the boy. 
Result, happy days for all concerned 
except the mother who for some rea- 
son or other has passed into the Great 

With Jackie in nearly every scene 
the opus is saved from traveling the 
quick road to oblivion. We will for- 
get it easily when the circus story,

hair is the result of improper care. 
Ordinary shampooing is imi enough; 
iust washing cannot sufficiently improve 
dull, drab hair. Only a shampoo that 
adds "that little something" dull hair 
lacks can really improve it. 

Golden Glint Shampoo was made 
particularly for medium brown hair — 
to make it look brighter and more beau- 
tiful. When your hair appears lifeless, 
all you need do is have a Golden Clliut 
Shampoo. It does more and IS more

"Enemies of Women" (Cosmo- 
politan) had been produced on a 
modest scale, it would have been dis- 
missed as stereotyped, dull stuff. But 
the sponsors have loosened the purse 
strings lavishly — so much so that the 
picture becomes one of those million 
dollar productions. And by giving it 
truly sumptuous settings and an au-

of the picture saves it — tbo much of 
its value is found in the more than 
excellent interpretation by Lionel 
Barrymore as a wealthy degenerate

The war comes sparing none but a 
group of wilful men who scoff at 
women. Yet these wealthy bounders 
catch the spirit of sacrifice and dis- 
cover their souls. The story has gaps.

him that she has a son at all — altho

bis wife and child, is nearly negative. 
Perhaps die original tale, "Captain 
Blackbird," possessed some virtues. 
But they haven't been transferred to 
the screen version. There is much 
ado over tribal rites and customs and 
these bits are saturated with hokum. 
Pauline Starke and Antonio Moreno 
and George Siegmann struggle brave- 
ly to appear convincing. Miss Starke, 
incidentally, is miscast. 

IT'S difficult to imagine just what 
Mack Sennett was thinking of 
when he wrote "Suzanna" (Allied 
Producers and Distributors) a tale of 
ancient vintage which carries none of 
his customary satire or burlesque. 
He turns to the babies-shifted-in- 
their-cradles-at-birth formula and 
writes it around a Spanish setting 
and places Mabel Normand in the 
role of a lowly peon. And Mabel 
doesn't show any of her flair for 
comedy. We must say that audiences 
will probably be amused with her — 
at least for old time's sake. You know 
the story now. The old servant comes 
forward with a confession which 
gives the girl a chance to receive for- 
giveness from the noble don. The 
latter's rebellious son steals her away 
from a tempestuous toreador. The 
pursuit is on and a fight on the edge 
of the cliff (horses are used) brings 
the fiesta and the happy ending. 

We look for much brighter things 
from the Sennett lot. George Nichols, 
you are wasted here. 

By Margaret Mayfield 

I've a garden 

In my heart 

Where flowers grow 

Pale blooms blossomed there 

Until your kisses 

Made red roses live. 

Their perfume you and I 

Alone may breathe 

If your love dies 

There will be 

Only withered flowers there 

Despair in my heart 

Death in the garden ! 

Gamaliel Bradford 

For all her fragile ways and white 

Demeanor like a lily. 
She took a singular delight 

In making men look silly. 

She had a face would fit a nun 

Devoted to the Savior ; 
But she was hardly such a one, 

To judge from her behavior. 

She played the deuce with scores of men ; 

But only to discover 
That she was left at three times ten 

With not a single lover.

A telephone personality 

In your face to face contacts 
with people, your appearance, your 
bearing and many other things help 
you to make the right impression. 
But in your telephone contacts 
there is only one thing by which 
you can be judged — your speech. 

An effective telephone person- 
ality is to-day a business and social 
asset. Everybody appreciates the 
person who speaks distinctly and 
pleasantly, neither too fast nor too 
slow, with a clear enunciation of 
each word, with lips facing the 
mouthpiece and speaking into it. 
In business, this is the telephone 
personality which induces favorable 
action on the part of the listener. 
To the salesman it may mean the 
difference between an order and 
no order; between an interview 

granted and an interview refused. 

Curiously enough, people who 
are careful to make themselves ef- 
fectively heard and understood 
face to face, often disregard the 
need for effectiveness in their tele- 
phone speech. Perhaps they shout, 
perhaps they mumble, perhaps they 
hold the mouthpiece far from their 
lips. And frequently they never 
realize that their carelessness has 
defeated the purpose of their talk. 

The Bell System maintains for 
telephone users the best facilities 
that science, modern equipment, 
skilled operation and careful man- 
agement can bring to telephone 
speech. But these facilities can be 
fully effective only when they are 
properly used.

Current Stage Plays 

(Continued from page 6) 

Palace. — Keith vaudeville. The home of 
America's best variety bills and the fore- 
most music hall in the world. Always an 
attractive vaudeville bill. 

Playhouse. — "Up She Goes" is a musical 
version of Frank Craven's "Too Many 
Cooks." The company is headed by 
Donald Brian and Gloria Fay. Fair en- 

Plymouth. — "The Old Soak," by Don 
Marquis. The hit of the season so far. 
Another "Lightnin'." Beresford in the 
title role is particularly engaging. 

Princess. — "Papa Joe." Mr. Malatesta 
in an amusing character study of Italian 

Republic. — ■ "Abie's Irish Rose." An 
amusing study in temperaments and the 
reconciliation of the irreconcilable — that is, 
the Irish and the Jews join hands. 

/vV/.rr. — "The Enchanted Cottage." A 
charming dream-type of drama by Sir 
Arthur Wing Pinero. It is an adventure 
into the realm of phantasy that succeeds 
in enchanting every one who sees it. 

Shuhcrt. — "Peer Gynt." Joseph Schild- 
kraut is not yet mature enough to play 
this, he makes Peer a spoiled boy. 

Thirty-ninth Street. — Louise Huff in 
Rachel Crothers's new play, "Mary The 
Third." Miss Crothers reverses the old 
theme whose slogan is, "For the Children's 

Times Square. — "The Fool." Unreal, 
impossible and moral too evident, but extra 
matinees have to be given to take care of 
the crowds — so there must be something. 

Vandcrbilt. — "Elsie." Another • musical 
comedy, with the advantage of having its 
musical score written by Sissle and Blake 
and Carlo and Sanders. 


"Anna Christie." Eugene O'Neill at his 
best. Worth seeing. 

"A Bill of Divorcement." A serious 
and well-acted drama. 

"Bombo." Good music and new jokes. 

"Bulldog Drummond." A mystery play 
everyone will like. 

"Dulcy." Demonstrating that beauty 
triumphs over brains. 

"Good Morning, Dearie." Excellent 
musical entertainment. 

"Lawful Larceny." A crook melodrama. 

"Make It Snappy." Eddie Cantor is 
the whole show. 

"Nice People." A comedy of manners. 

"Partners Again." A Potash and Perl- 
mutter comedy. 

"Red Pepper." A typical Mclntyre and 
Heath entertainment. 

"Sally." One of the best musical shows 
ever written. 

"Shore Leave." Frances Starr weeps 
less than usual. 

"Six Cylinder Love." A domestic 
comedy with a moral. 

"The Circle." An excellent comedy 
with an all-star cast. 

"The Gold Diggers." A snappy, color- 
ful comedy. 

"The Hairy Ape." The tragedy of a 
stoker. Excellent. 

"The Merry Widow." A musical 
comedy revival that is making good.

Sister, it is time to wake; 

On the hillside runnels break 

Their long ice-bound sleep, to find, 

At the kiss of Mm and wind, 

Once again the laughter lo>t 

Mid December's blight and frost. 

thy dreaming, sister dear; 
April's tear-washed skies are near, 
And already, all day long, 
Blue-birds lift a venturous song. 
Waken, it is time to 
Where the crocus, thru the snow. 
Pushes its brave head of gold 
Upward thru the sleet and cold. 
Warmer airs shall breathe again, 
Mists of green with fragrant rain 
Drift ;ilnng the slumbering hills, 
Where the morn its incense spills. 

Waken, sister, wake and see 
How the young year's prophecy 
Of fresh fields and leafy dells, 

Tendriled vines and attared bells, 
Even now begins to bear 
Sweet fulfilment everywhere. 


By BuKt.ii ii ii I i Lee 

I will not heed this tin 
Low and vibrant, 
iantly sweet — 
I shall whisper 
A platitude 
To mj companion — 
I shall not listen. 
W'hu is he, 

Tins player with souls, 
That he should have the power 
To make my heart cry 
As if in pain? 
I shall laugh aloud — 
Strike a discordant note, 
In all this sweetness — 
I will not bare my soul 
For everyone to see.

Advertising is the 
Sunlight of Business 

To all that is healthy and vital in 
business, it means increased strength 
and growth ; but advertising is a fierce 
heat which withers and consumes that 
which is unsound. 

A business which is not a good business 
should not be advertised. A business which 
would not benefit from widespread appre- 
ciation of its ideals had better acquire a 
new set of ideals.

Whose Fault Is This— 
Star, Director, or Both? 

HI, ho! What do you mean Mr. 
Star, using a pick and shovel, 
as an oil scout ? In view of the 
fact that oil is found at depths of 
from three to five thousand feet, a 
derrick is used to drill, and it some- 
times takes a year before pay sand is 
hit. This picture was shown in Tulsa, 
Oklahoma, and surrounding towns. 
The laugh is on you. 

^sop, the wise old owl of Greece, 
once said, "Know thyself." Had he 
lived in this movie age, he might have 
changed it to, "Know thy subject, be- 
fore portraying it." 

Who ever saw a fireman coming in 
from a long trip, without a speck of 
smudge on his face, and lily-white 
hands nicely manicured? If Maurice 
Barrymore were alive today, would 
he or any of the old school, do these 
things? Even among our best of this 
decade, Guy Bates Post, or Tyrone 
Power, the smallest detail would be 
correct, because they are not of the 
mushroom variety. I saw, with my 
own face and eyes, a typewriter which 
lias not been used in large offices since 
about 1900, fa blind machine) used 
in a late picture. What office girl or 
boy, would not notice this error? 

I repeat, what d'you mean? If you 
are getting five thousand dollars a 
week, six square meals a day, eight 
days a week, why not take a vacation, 
and find out how things are done in 
real life — not reel life? Barnum once 
said the public loves to be fooled. 
Yes, perhaps, but dont get caught at 
it. For the blue-eyed boy, at a million 
a year, is putting a screen nail in his 
coffin, every time these mistakes are 

Listen to this, O ye Australian 
Crawlers ! A swimmer was swimming 
the breast stroke, and 1"* caught a 
man swimming the Australian crawl. 
This simply ain't done. 

In a court-room scene, the defend- 
ant is locked in a cage, on the other 
side of room from the attorney, who 
was obliged to cross, every time he 
conversed with his client, and a mur- 
der trial at that. If the writer does 
not understand his subject, the long 
envelope is returned with a "not 
suited to our magazine" inclosed slip, 
a most depressing sight ; but when a 
celebrity makes a picture of a peniten- 
tiary scene, without ever having been 
even in a real honest to goodness jail. 
the dear public pays out their hard- 
earned shekels, to be humbugged. Is 
this fair? 

I ask you, is it? 



I he Remedy Foi ( Censorship 

mtinued from page 11) 

were i Jeneral Charles II * '>!<■. 
fudge Edward B. ( )'Brien, the I [on- 
orable William 1 1. Carter and Mrs. 
Alfred I I eatherbee. Business men, 
bankers, professional men and worn 
en, labor leaders, ex sen ice nun, 
club women, teachers and clergymen 
all united to help. These united t<> 
make it clear to the voters, men and 
women both, that : 

i ! ) "Censorship means thai one man can 
determine what everyone in Massachusetts 
can see. What man i-> big enough and 
wise enough to have tlh^ power? Are we 
mi weak and pictures so bad that cur right 
oi selection shall be taken from u^? 

i nsorship mean- fewer pictures, 
advanced prices and uninteresting amuse- 

(3) "Present laws fully protect the situ- 
ation and prevent the showing of anything 
that is obscene, indecent, immoral or harm- 

(4) "Back of it all is the age-old desire 
of a self-selected few to run a community 
and compel all people to do their will. It 
is not the common good that the reformer 
i- concerned about. It is his selfish desire 
to compel everyone to adopt his peculiar 
standard- and ideals. The censor who 
Ueves that adventure, dancing, cards and 
the showing of modern life is wrong, will 
classify them as immoral and forbid their 
showing on the screen. If the D 
narrow and bigoted we will be allowed to 
see nothing, and if he be broad and care- 
less we maj see things which present laws 
make impossible. 

(5) "If we deliver up our right of selec- 
tion we will soon be ruled entirely by 

■ us and deprived of that liberty which 
h is made our country possible. There may 
occasionally be pictures which are open to 
just criticism and which could easily be 
stopped by anyone interested enough to 
bring complaint to the local authorities. 
There is no reason or argument for over- 
turning the right of individual selection 
by the establishment of censorship." 

What was the result of this en- 
lightened appeal to the puhlic intel- 
ligence: It was amazing. According 
to the Boston Transcript, a very con- 
servative hut a very great newspaper : 

"In Massachusetts, for the first time in 
the United States, a proposal to establish 
a State Censorship of Motion Pictures 
came to popular vote and was rejected by 
a threefold majority. Such a defeat of 
one more effort to regulate the pleasures 
of a contented many according to the idea 
of an insistent few speaks for itself. 

The remedy for censorship is now 
entirely clear. Organize to tight. 
Form a club against censorship in 
your own home town. Go to your 
local theater owner and ask his help. 
particularly if you need a meeting 
place. Boost good pictures. Stay 
away from the poor ones. Co-operate 
with your state organization. If you 
haven't one, create one as they did in 
Indiana. There a voluntary state or- 
ganization, in return for the co-opera- 
tion of theater owners, recommends 
good pictures.

The so-called tribute to Sarah 
Bernhardt ended with the highly ap- 
propriate "sic transit gloria niundi." 
"Do you .know what that means?'' 
asked the movie-audience mother of 
her movie-audience child: "No," an- 
swered the little one, "what does it 
mean?" "I dunno," said the parent, 
mildly indignant, "it's French. It 
probably means 'orrewar' or 'good- 
bye' or something." 

We'd like to lay down a modest

There is something particularly 
laudable in the basic sentiment of 
"Adam's Rib." By reason of his 
Old World glamor, romance and 
gallantry (undisputed) a handsome, 
exiled, still youthful monarch wins 
the favor of the wife of a hard, two- 
fisted, steely - eyed, cigar - smoking, 
equally young he-business man. And 
while Love is carefully toeing the 
window-sill for a good take-off what 
doth the busy business man ? Gad 
sir, without once removing the cigar 
from his mouth, he buys the king's 
toy kingdom back for him and sends 
him packing. Magnificent, isn't it?

'By Martha Ryerson 

245 Oxford Street, London, W. I., England 

Every woman who prizes a beautiful 
complexion should clay at least once each 
week, but she should be very, very par- 
ticular in her choice of clays; she should 
use nothing but the silky-textured 
Terra-derma-lax, imported from England. 

This English Clay has skin-vitalizing 
power, a magnetic quality which is 
totally lacking in the domestic massage 
muds now flooding the market. Andit is 
absolutely harmless to the most delicate skin. 

When applied to the face with the fi nger- 
tips, this English Clay dries quickly in 
a firm, tingling mask. Forty minutes 
later it is whisked away with a moist towel 
and the miracle of skin-beauty is complete. 

What happens is really this : the gentle 
magnetic action of Terra-derma-lax 
cleanses the skin perfectly, cleanses it 
in a way that no amount of scrubbing 
with soap and water or cold cream can 
cleanse it, drawing out from each tiny 
pore every dirt-speck, blackhead, per- 
spiration-clot, and impurity that causes 
faulty complexions. 

Get the English Clay habit; actresses, 
society women, everyone who values 
youth and beauty has acquired it. Clay 
with Terra-derma-lax at least once each 
week, twice is not too often, and you can 
have a gloriously young complexion, the 
envy of all your friends. 

For the daily cold cream bath — use Terra-derma 
Creme, the Beauty Twin to Terra-derma-lax — the 
English Cold Cream with an English Clay base. In 
its velvety softness, this cold cream is unequaled by 
any other product on the market. It has the quality 
of imparting to the skin its own exquisite texture. 

For sale by all druggists and department stores. Tcrra-

Why Mrs Blakely 
-How Do You Do! 



He had met her only once before. Some one had pre- 
sented him at a reception both had attended. He had 
conversed with her a little, danced with her once. And 
now, two weeks later, he sees her approaching with a 
young lady who he surmises is her daughter. 

"Why, Mrs. Blakely, how do you do!" he exclaims, 

rushing forward impulsively. But Mrs. Blakely, 

customed to the highest degree of courtesy at all times, 
returns his greeting coldly. 

And nodding briefly, she passes on — leaving the young 
man angry with her, but angrier himself for blundering 
at the very moment he wanted most to create a favorable 

DO you know what to say to a woman when meeting 
her for the first time after an introduction? Do 
you know what to say to a woman when leaving 
her after an introduction? Would you say "Good- 
bye, I am very glad to have met you?" Or, if she said 
that to you, how would you answer? 

It is just such little unexpected situations like these that 
take us off our guard and expose us to sudden embarrass- 
ments. None of us like to do the wrong thing, the incorrect 
thing. It condemns us as ill-bred. It makes us ill at ease 
when we should be well poised. It makes us 
self-conscious and uncomfortable when we should 
be calm, self-possessed, confident of ourselves. A 

The knowledge of what to do and say on all 
occasions is the greatest personal 
asset any man or woman can 
have. It protects against the r 

humiliation of conspicuous 
blunders. It acts as an armor 
against the rudeness of others. 
It gives an ease of manner, a 
certain calm dignity and self-pos- 
session that people recognize and respect 

Do You Ever Feel That You 
Don't "Belong"? 

Perhaps you have been to a party lately 
or a dinner, or a 


reception of some 
kind. Were you 
entirely at . ease, 
sure of yourself, 
confident that you 
would not do or 
say anything thai 
others would rec- 
ognize as ill-bred? 

Or, were you 
self-cons cious, 
afraid of doing or 
saying the wrong 
thing, constantly 
on the alert — never 
wholly comfortable 
for a minute? 

Many people feel 
"alone" in a crowd, 
out of place. They 
do not know how 
to make strangers 
like them— how to 
create a good 
first impression. 
When they are in- 
troduced they do 
not know how to 
start conversation 
flowing smoothly 
and naturally. At 
the dinner table 
they feel con- 
strained, embar- 
rassed. Somehow 
they always feel 
that they don't

Little Blunders 
That Take Us 
Off Our Guard 

There are so many 
problems of conduct constantly arising. 
How should asparagus be eaten? How 
should the finger-bowl be used, the napkin, 
the fork and knife? Whose name should 
be mentioned first when making an intro- 
duction? How 
should invitations 
be worded? How 
should the home be 
decorated for a wed- 
ding? What clothes 
should be taken on 
a trip to the South? 
In public, at the 
theatre, at the 
dance, on the train 
— wherever we go 
and with whomever 
we happen to be, 
we encounter prob- 
lems that make it 
necessary for us to 
hold ourselves well 
in hand, to be pre- 
pared, to know ex- 
actly what to do 
and say. 

For a Very 
Limited Time 

Let the Book of 

Etiquette Be Your 

Social Guide 

For your own 
happiness, for your 
own peace of mind 
and your own ease, 
it is important that 
you know definite- 
ly the accepted 
rules of conduct 
in all public places. 

It is not expen- 
sive dress that 
counts most in so- 
cial circles — but 

correct manner, 
knowledge of social 
form. Nor is it par- 
ticularly clever 
speech that wins the 
largest audiences. 
If one knows the little secrets of enter- 
taining conversation, if one is able to say 
always the right thing at the right time, 
one cannot help being a pleasing and ever- 
welcome guest. 

The Book of Etiquette, social secretary 
to thousands of men and women, makes it 
possible for every one to do, say, write and 
wear always that which is absolutely cor- 
rect and in good form — gives to every one 
a new ease and poise of manner, a new 
self-confidence and assurance. It smooths 
away the little crudities — does amazing 
things in the matter of self-cultivation.

Current Stage Plays 

{Readers in distant towns will do well In preserve this list for reference when these 
spoken plays appear in their vicinity.) 

Belmont. — "You and I." A Westchester 
society comedy with sparkling repartee- 
cloaking an undercurrent of tragic middle- 
age — H. B. Warner as the husband, who 
has stifled genius ior the sake of a family, 
and Lucile Watson as the wife, who tho 
deluged with love, feels the resentment of 
ln's disappointment. 

Booth. — "The 
Seventh Heaven." 
II a n d m a d e on a 
melodramatic pattern 
i n a M on t mar tr e 
tenement in Paris, 
of an admixture of 
love, regeneration, 
humor and unreality. 
An excellent per- 
formance with Helen 
Menken starring.

ties of 1923," with 
Peggy Hopkins 
Joyce leading the 
delectable and in-

flower," with lovely 
Edith Day flashing 
thru an exquisite 
musical score. 

(. entury Roof. — 
Artists and models. 
Review later. 

Cohan. ■ — ■ "Adri- 
enne." One of the numerous musical 
comedies that are keeping the mercury 
from getting up-stage. The chorus is un- 
usually good, the singing happy. Billy 
Van and Richard Carle, the latter of "The 
Spring Chicken" fame, ^akc care of the 

Corf. — "Merton of the Movies." In 
which Glenn Hunter self-visualized as a 
movie hero of the "great open spaces" 
plays havoc with our emotions as an arch 
comedian. The play carries the same 
poignant humor that was rampant in 
Harry Leon Wilson's story of the same 

Daly's. — "The Newcomers." A revue by 
Will Morrissey and Joe Burroughs. Re- 
view later. 

Elliott. — "Rain." A bitter tragedy by 
Somerset Maugham ; a violent attack on 
the repressions of Puritanism. Jeanne 
Eagels is superb in the leading role. 

Empire. — "Zander the Great." A melo- 
drama with Alice Brady as a hick tender- 
foot, a child as an uplift foil and boot- 
legging ranchmen of the storied-Western 
type to stir up things. Fine acting of an 
improbable story with a laugh in every 
line and moments of tense excitement. 

Gaiety.— "Aren't We All?" Cyril Maude 
in a delightful light comedy that revolves 
around a philandering husband and an in- 
discreet wife. Mr. Maude in a Grumpy- 
ish character sets a rare pace of fun and 
his support keeps it up. 

Garrick. — "The Devil's Disciple." A 
Shaw satire, which as usual shows up the 
under side of militarism and politics. It 
ends ungallantly on a triangle. An ex- 
cellent show with Roland Young as Gen- 
eral Burgoyne alone worth seeing. 

Globe. — "George White's Scandals." A 
de luxe edition of gorgeously gowned 
beauties that make scandals appetizing, in- 
cluding parodies on "Chauve-Souris" and 
the "Moscow Art Theater." 

Harris. — "Icebound." A drama delineat- 
ing the icebound quality of New England 
emotions; well acted. Awarded the

That You Should See 
"The Fool" 
"7th Heaven"

"George White's Scandals" 

Pulitzer Prize for the best play of Ameri- 
can life for the season 1922-1923. 

Hudson. — "So This Is London." George 

Cohan's English comedy. An exaggerated 

but an amusing study of the English and 

American temperament, in contrast. 

Liberty.— "Little Nellie Kelly." One of 

George Cohan's best 

— a cyclone of dance 

and song. 

Morosco. — "Not 
So Fast." Old style 
Southern gentleman 
stuff with a family 
estate in jeopardy. 
Rather a slow mov- 
ing comedy.

The Most Darintf Booh 
Ever Written! 

Elinor Glyn, famous author of "Three Weeks," has written an 
amazing hook, that should he read hy every man and woman 
— married or single. "The Philosophy of Love" is not a novel 
— it is a penetrating searchlight fearlessly turned on the most 
intimate relations of men and women. Read helow how you can 
get this thrilling hook at our risk without advancing a penny. 

WILL you marry the 
man you love, or will 
you take the one you can 

If a husband stops loving 
his wife, or becomes infatu- 
ated with another woman, 
who is to blame — the hus- 
band, the wife, or the 
"other woman? " 

Will you win the girl you 
want, or will Fate select 
your Mate? 

Should a bride tell her husband 
what happened at seventeen? 

Will you be able to hold the love 
of the one you cherish — or will your 
marriage end in divorce? 

Do you know how to make people 
like you? 

IF you can answer the above ques- 
tions if you know all there is 
to know about winning a woman's 
heart or holding a man's affections 
—you don't need ''The Philosophy 
of Love." But if you are in doubt — 
if you don't know just how to 
handle your husband, or satisfy 
your wife, or win the devotion of 
the one you care for — then you 
must get this wonderful book. You 
can't afford to take chances with 
your happiness.

themselves beating against a 
stone wall in affairs of love? 
When is it dangerous to disre-

curb a headstrong man, or are you the 
victim of men's whims? Do you know how 
to retain a man's affection always? How 
to attract men? Do you know the things 
that most irritate a man? Or disgust a 
woman? Can you tell when a man really 
loves you — or must you take his word for 
it? Do you know what you MUST NOT 
DO unless you want to be a "wall flower" 
or an "old maid"? Do you know the little 
things that make women like you? Why 
do "wonderful lovers" often become 
thoughtless husbands soon after marriage 
— and how can the wife prevent it? Do you 
know how to make marriage a perpetual 

In "The Philosophy of Love," Elinor 
Glyn answers these precious questions — 
and countless others. She places a magni- 
fying glass unflinchingly on the most in- 
timate relations of men and. women. No 
detail, no matter how delicate or avoided 
by others, is spared. She warns you gravely, 
she suggests wisely, she explains fully. 

A book of this type, to be of great value, 
could not mince words. But while Madame 
G lyn calls a spade a spade — while she deals 
with strong emotions and passions in her 
frank, fearless manner — she nevertheless 
handles her subject so tenderly and sa- 
credly that the book can safely be read 
by any grown-up man or woman. In fact, 
anyone over eighteen should be compelled 
to read "The Philosophy of Love"; for. 
while ignorance may sometimes be bliss. 
it is folly of the rankest sort to be ignor- 
ant of the problems of love and marriage.

it would have saved me a lot of misery and

with Leatrice Joy,

From [he jior> by Maximilian Foster, Screen pltrj bj S.i..'.i Cuu«n 

What should the wife of a Wall Street gambler 
do who seeks to save him from ruin? 

Paramount answers this question with "The Silent 
Partner," a new and terrifically powerful handling 
of the theme of love versus the fever tor gain. 

In the days of prosperity and golden winnings, the 
beautiful young wife, Leatrice Joy, determines to 
start "gold-digging" from her husband, Owen Moore, 
and build a reserve unknown to him. 

But how to look as though she is spending the 
thousands he gives up, that is the question! 

How to make a $20 gown or a $5 hat or a paste 
necklace look like ten times the value? She does ihis! 

And see what happens when the crash comes!

Good and Bad Authorship 


Editor's Note. — Clara Ber anger is a prominent scenarist. She is re- 
sponsible for "Grumpy," "0)ily 38," and others too numerous to mention. 
We offer these (to us) delightful animadversions without comment. 

AT the recent International Congress on Motion Pic- 
ture Arts, I sat thcu a lot of speeches and dis- 
cussions by members of the Authors' League (of 
which I am one) and Of various other professions; and 
one glaring fact struck me — the almost unanimous pre- 
supposition that all authors of books and plays are good, 
and all authors of screen plays and workers for the screen 
are bad. 

There are plenty of bad pictures, and plenty of adapters 
of novels and plays for the screen who are bad, but there 
are also plenty of good ones. But equally true it is that 
many of the books that are published — most of them in 
fact — are bad. Of the plays that are produced each year, 
possibly five per cent, are good ; and yet these authors — 
and it is usually the bad ones who cry the loudest — pick 
on pictures every chance they get and proclaim how rotten 
and commercial the whole industry is. 

I have yet to hear anyone connected with pictures who 
does not frankly admit that most of them have not yet 
reached a standard that could be called art ; but I have 
yet to hear an author, or a playwright, admit that the 
majority of books and plays are as bad as the majority 
of pictures. If you stop to think of the mass of junk 
published every year, as literature, and the number of 
bad plays produced every year, you will, in all fairness, 
have to draw the same line between good and bad author- 


ship in these fields of literary endeavor as you do in the 
field of screen-writing. 

Most of the writers who air their grievances and de- 
clare that the screen is a business — that the producers 
think only of making money — are only too willing to sell 
whatever they can to the picture producers for a flat stun 
of money and make no stipulation about working with 
the adapter and director in translating their work to the 
screen. I happen to know that almo-t every one of the 
picture companies welcomes the cooperation of the author 
in the development of the picture : and it is always 
sible for an author to get a clause in his contract giving 
him the privilege of sitting in on the scenario conferences 
and on the final cutting and editing of the picture. But 
what the author want- is money; Ik- i- not willing I 
give up his time. Dear, artistic creator — he would alwav< 
rather take the money than give any further time to pro- 
tecting those delicate brain children from the cruel hands 
of the picture doctors. It i- so much easier to wait until 
the picture is finished and then ^et up a howl about how 
terrible pictures are — what ignorant, inartistic, commer- 
cial people work in picture- '

This gifted girl has lingered in obscurity too long.

WHEN they finish shooting the scene ( 
and the Kleig lights go out, where do 
the movie stars go ? 
Perhaps they all go out and have a game 
of golf. Golf, tennis, automobile racing, 
airplaning all have had their turn ; but movie 
stars must have new thrills, new experiences. 
What sport in the wide world can fulfil these require- 
ments but the old and romantic sport of kings — that of 
boating. Yes, the movie stars have taken to the water 
— not as ducks, but as yachtsmen. If you dont believe 
it, just take a run down to Wilmington some afternoon — 
it's only forty minutes from Hollywood — and watch the 
ducks, I mean the yachtsmen. 

Who was it that said there were no thrills on the 
water? Seventy miles an hour on the water is the 
fastest speed in the world. It is faster than a hundred and 
fifty miles an hour in an automobile. It is faster than 
two hundred miles an hour in an airplane. Yes, it is 
even faster than seven cocktails and a bevy of dancing 
girls in a gilded cafe. 
There are plenty

of Kings — and

Seventy miles an hour on the water is 
the fastest speed in the world. It is

of thrills, all i ight. It'-- a man 
sized job when your speedboat 
leaves the water and starts to 
leap from wave to wave. You 
come roaring down the course 
with a noise like a battery of 
machine guns, You take a turn 
and your, boal behaves like a 
submarine. Or supposing your 
mechanician fails to see a piece 
of driftwood the size of an old 
soldier's cane. It rips your 
boat open like- a can opener thru 
a can of green peas. < )r if it 
happens to be a submerged rail- 
road tie, you hit with a crash 
like Halley's cornel bumping 
Neptune. You blow up like a 
can of dynamite and then take 
a nose dive to the bottom of the 
sea. Sport ? You bet ! 

Ask Cecil de Mille whether 
there are any thrills. De Mille 
built the Miss Cecilia to raee 
against (iar Wood's world 
champion speedboat Miss 
America. De Mille was driving 
at a comfortable speed, say 
fifty miles an hour, when sud- 
denly there was a flash, a 
rumble, and then a terrific 
blast. In the next instant De 
Mille found himself in the 
water with the flames rising in 
the air a hundred feet from his 
boat. A minute later the boat 
went to the bottom spreading 
the flaming gasoline out on the 
surface of the water. 

Al Fear. De Mille's mecha- 
nician, was rendered uncon- 
scious by the blast and De 
Mille swam to his aid. The 
surface of the water was one 
mass of flames, cutting off all 
help. Finally Xat Walsh's 
boat cut thru the cordon of 
flames rescuing the drowning 
men. And yet they say there 
are no thrills in boating. What 
is a movie thriller to this; ? 

If you've ever sat on the landing of the California 
Yacht Club at twilight and watched the little starboat 
fleet hovering into port like a flight of belated curlew, 
you'd understand another trait in these people from Holly- 
wood. We've heard so much of divorce and the night 
life in Hollywood that — oh well just come clown to Los 
Angeles harbor and find the movie stars drinking in 
God's beauty and playing the sport of kings. 

Perhaps you'll find Dustin Farnum there. Dustin likes 
to sail the little starboats. so small that they remind one 
of the story of three men in a tub. But if you think 
you cant get a thrill out of starboating you're mistaken. 
Falling off horses and leaping across yawning canyons 
dont compare with it. 

Even the Wild West had taken to the sea. Among 
others. Tony, Tom Mix's famous pal, prefers yachting 
to wild west stuff. Of course you've heard how Tony 
helped launch Tom Mix's boat the other day. It was a 
regular wild west launching party (who ever heard of 
a wild west launching party) with tall sombreros, forty- 
four guns, and lariats. Tom threw a rope around the 
new boat and Tony pulled it into the water. Now isn't 

The beautiful schooner, Uncas, of John Bowers, which will compete this 
summer in the great international race from the Santa Barbara Yacht 

Club to Honolulu 

that a helluva — excuse me — a peculiar way to launch a 

Of course all the movie stars were there at the 
christening of the Miss Mixit. Miss Thomasina, or Miss 
Mixit a- the family call the little lady of a single year, 
officiated. She pulled the string that broke the bottle that 
christened the boat that Tom built. 

But getting back to boats — Miss Mixit is a boat to be 
proud of. She is a 09- foot cruiser powered with two 
200 horsepower I.M-0 Hall Scott mot >rs. A large cock- 
pit has been constructed aft which Tom will use for a 
gymnasium. Tom >»ys there will he plenty of room for 
a riding arena too. for Tom insists that Tony must he 
included in all arrangements, yachting or otherwise. 

There are thrills to be had in the big boats too. A 
short time ago Cecil de Mille left on a daring trip to 
Infernal Channel and Tiburon Island on his yacht 
Scazcard. The Infernal Channel is one of the most 
dangerous water passages in the world, which makes 
landing on Tiburon Island a hazardous performance. 
The island has been reported by previous explorers to be

How the 

Motion Picture 

Has Influenced 

Young Peru 



IT is not the Radio or the Telephone, the Telegraph or 
the aeroplane, which is the greatest internationalizer, 
but the Moving' Picture. 

For all of us, whether we pass our intelligence test at 
the top or at the bottom, visual appeal must always be 
the strongest and the most easily understood. That a 
photograph will give an understanding of a place or per- 
son, which the most accurate description can never 
give, is, of course, a truism. And a photograph

typical of the best in North American life, 
will do more to inculcate North American 
ideals than any number of lectures and ar- 
ticles in the newspapers. 

And by this I do not mean educational films.

American manners and environ- 
ment, especially when it carrie- 
with it an amusing story, and at- 
tractive actors, has great influence. 
In the City of Lima, there are 
more cinemas, as they call them. 
in proportion to the population, 
than in any city of the I'nited 
States There is no other form 
of amusement. Traveling thea- 
trical and operatic troupes are 
rare. The people, especially the 
women, cannot gamble, or drink 
Pisco, the native home-brew, all 
the time, and the national sport 
of bull-fighting has but a *.hort 
season. In consequence a city of 
moving picture fans has developed. 



In one city bluck there will be as many as five 
moving picture houses. The coming attractions 
are advertised weeks ahead. "Gran Estreno" 
they call them, and banners are strung across 
the streets from balcony to balcony telling 
what they are to be. There are generally 
two performances a day, the Vermouth, 
which starts at six-thirty in the after- 
noon and an evening performance 
commencing at nine o'clock. Peruvian 
meals are elastic, dinner comes any 
time between eight and nine o'clock, 
so the Vermouth is the more pop- 
ular performance. 

Strangely enough, it is not ro- 
mances of Spanish sehoritas or tore- 
adors that interest the Peruvian 
movie fan, but stories of North Amer- 
ican life. Mary Pickford, Norma and 
Constance Talmadge, Ruth Roland, and 
Pearl White are among the favorites. They 
have as devoted admirers in a little Indian 
town in the interior of Peru, as they have on 
Broadway. It is safe to say that American films 
always draw the largest audiences, with the possible ex- 
ception of the Caesar films, which star Bertini, the beau- 
tiful Italian Movie actress. 

The reason for this is, that foreign films have for the 
most part very little action. The eternal triangle, the 
plot used most often in French and Italian pictures, pales 
in interest beside the perils that Pearl White escapes or 
the miraculous deeds of Eddie Polo. 

When one realizes the popularity of American films, 
it is hard to understand why so few of the good ones 
come to South America. In the five years that I lived 
in Lima, the only big American film that I saw was 
Farrar in "Joan the Woman." When Mary Pickford, 
William S. Hart, and other favorites come to town, it is 
always in their less important films and these are gen- 
erally four or five years old. 

Constance Talmadge is undoubtedly the most beloved 
of the Peruvians. Her dress, her figure, her mannerisms 
have become the ideal of the Peruvian flapper. 

And here let me cite certain direct and definite changes 
that the American screen has brought about in Peruvian 
life and manners. Changes which cannot be attributed to 
any other source. Until the advent of the ubiquitous 
cinema, Peruvian girls dressed in a South American ver- 
sion of European styles of the nineties. They wore very 
short-vamp high-heeled shoes, had small waists, large 
hips and otherwise overripe curves. Their clothes were 
always too tight, and black was the predominating color. 
The ideal figure resembled that which may be seen in the 
chorus of an American burlesque show. 

The uncorseted straight figure, the bobbed hair and 
flat heels of the American girl were not taken over, altho 
seen often enough in the American fashion magazines 
until their superior charm was proved in the person of a 
film favorite.

DID you ever hear of a marriage being celebrated 
at midnight? I have assisted at one, but it 
took place on the screen in the new picture pro- 
duced in France by Armand du Plessy and which is 
called "Manage de Minuit" (The Midnight Mar- 
riage). This picture might be a super one, if the pro- 
ducer could make the most of such an interesting 
subject. Of course, the idea is not new, but it is 
presented with a certain amount of originality. 

There are however certain scenes in this photoplay 
which will certainly not be passed by English or 
American censors. I mean some scenes showing the 
hero in his relations with the other sex and a villain 
of a type to be avoided in public spectacles. 

Now this picture of which the cast includes many 
well-known French actors, can be said to be a Belgian 
one as the producer and the heroine (Miss Nelly 
Muriel) are Belgians. But there is a decision of the 
Society of Film Authors of France to the effect that 
a picture is to be considered of French nationality 
if among other reasons, "the producer is or speaks 


"Married Love," the book of Dr. Marie Stopes, 
which has been advertised so extensively in England, 
has been adapted to the screen and produced at the 
British Super Film Studio by G. B. Samuelson. This 
is certainly a fine picture, whose story is a study of 
the happiness and the troubles of married life. 

The troubles are represented by the respectable 

number of ten children, the eldest of whom — our 

heroine — is afraid of marriage when she sees that 

it is so difficult for her poor parents to make both 

ends meet. 

Except for some few scenes, 
this picture is quite an inter- 
esting one and is well acted by 
Sydney Fairbrother. Sam 
Liversay, Rex Davis, and 
Lillian Hall Davis. 

A very interesting English 
film was shown recently which 
represents an original idea. It 
is not a feature film, just an 
educational one. It shows us 
what old London was and 
what it actually is by means 
of old prints introduced skil- 
fully in the picture. This is 
called "The Romance of Lon- 
don" and has been edited by 
The Gaumont Company. 


Since I started writing this 
series of articles, some changes 
have occurred in the cinema 
industry in Germany. In fact, 
in the studios there, they are 



At a Glance 

not now producing with so much intensity as they 
were before, and 1 understand that the importers 
will have more business in Germany, as they will in- 
troduce more foreign pictures in this territory. 

This state of things is due to the rati- of the mark 
which, by its depreciation, has augmented consider- 
ably the price of the picture productions. < 'f course, 
the German stars do not cease working, but the situa- 
tion is not \ cry brilliant 

t Ksi Oswalda, for instance, quite a good film ac- 
tress, is continuing her scries of pictures and she lias 
already completed many. 

( Issi I 'swalda is one of the best German actn 
and is particularly good for roles in which she has 
to be waggish, malicious and cunning. She is all 
that, at least she seems to be when we see her on the 
screen and she has also a very delightful smile. 


I referred to this c&untry very briefly in my last 
article when citing "Don Juan." I may now give you 
some more particulars about the film activities in 
Austria whose production is often amalgamated with 
the German one. 

There are, amongst others, two big studies in Aus- 
tria, viz : The Sascha Film and the Vita Filmindustri. 

The first produced lately a spectacular film origi- 
nally called "Sodom and Gomorrah" featuring the 
Austrian star, Lucie Doraine, who has a certain popu- 
larity in many European countries. At the moment 
of writing this article, I am informed that this picture 
is now shown in the States under another title. 

Another picture made at the Sascha studios is called 
"Sons of the Revolution." The episodes of the French 
Revolution, most of which more likely occurred in 
the imagination of the writers, 
seem to attract more and more 
the producers of the different 

"Sons of the Revolution" is 
an adaptation of the book by 
Frederic Soulie and can be 
said to be the story of a boy 
whose origin is unknown, as 
he was born during the troub- 
led period of the French 

After many adventures, he 
will find out who his parents 
are and, of course, he has also 
the opportunity of finding a 
charming wife. There are 
some beautiful scenes in this 
rather improbable story and 
the acting is perfect.

F one of these days, some French 
family should recognize a familiar 
baby face on the screen, there 
would be complications — not to say 
woe, in the house of De Lacey. 
There are queer stories around the 
studios of Hollywood and this is one 
of the queerest. 

It is the story of Philippe de Lacey 
accounted by many, the most beau- 
tiful child that has ever been seen 
on the screen. 

During the World War, an Eng- 
lish woman named De Lacey who 
was living in New York went to the 
battle fields of France with the 
American Women's Overseas Hos- 
pital Contingent. One day she wa's 
called to a little hut near Nancy where a woman 
lay dying of pneumonia. On the bed with her 
was a baby about eighteen months old. 

Miss de Lacey had the woman and the child 
removed to a base hospital where she died. 
Struggling for her last breath, she told as much 
as she could of the baby's history and begged 
Miss de Lacey to see that somewhere he find 
a home. She said that the child's mother was 
only seventeen years old and had been killed a 
few days before by a German bomb that was 
dropped from an aeroplane. The baby's father 
— her son — had been killed with his three broth- 
ers at the 'defense of Verdun. 

Miss de Lacey brought the baby back to New- 
York intending to find a home for him some 
where. She happened to meet an actress who 
knew Geraldine Farrar, and Farrar was at that 
time casting a picture. As soon as Farrar saw 
the little fellow — at that time two and a half — 
his fortune was made. 

He is five now and has become one of the 
sure-of-an-engagement actors of Hollywood. 
Among the pictures in which he has appeared

UP the steep 
cobbles of 
the Pas- 
sage des Ab- 
besses hastened 
a young man 
wearing a 
wreath of sau- 
sages festooned 
about his neck 
and carrying in 
one hand a fan- 
tastic nosegay of 
scarlet peppers, 
glossy young 
onions and 
daffodils, and as 
he went he lifted 
up his soul in 
song imploring' 
some lady of the 
name of Chloe 
to go a-maying. 

The stout 
gendarme on the 
corner regarded 
h i m tolerantly. 
Name of a 
name, these 
artists were 
quite mad, but 
what would 
you ? Madness is 
no crime and a 
man was not to 

blame if the good God had made him an Englishman. 
Which, indeed, shows the gendarme to be a man of broad 
mind and liberal views. But the young man now disap- 
pearing under the archway beyond was not aware of 
being pitied, for tho his feet, in undeniably shabby shoes, 
trod the rude pavement, his head, which was that of a 
young Greek god, was in the clouds. Pausing for breath, 
he glanced back thru the arch at Paris, lying below in 
the blue luminous mist, the Seine moving placidly under 
its white bridges between quays where lime trees blos- 
somed and old men in rusty shovel hats browsed among 
the dingy treasures of the book-stalls. And his glance 
was that of an owner regarding his possessions. 

For Paris belonged to Little Billie, Notre Dame was 
his own private treasure, and the big bosomed market 
women wore red shawls solely to please his eyes. 

From somewhere close at hand came the strains of a 
violin bringing him about with a visible start of annoy- 
ance. "He's got the poor little flea at it again," Billie 

Arthur Edmund Carewe in the sinister and immortal role of Svengali 

muttered, eying 
the attic window 
with its torn 
green paper 
shade gloomily, 
"it's a damn 
shame, the old 
slave driver ! 
And I suppose 
as soon as he 
smells these sau- 
sages he'll be 
down, rubbing 
his oily hands, 
loving us like 
brothers ! And 
the worst is he 
isn't a gentleman 
— you could in- 
sult a gentle- 
man !" 

In the dark- 
ness of the hall 
Little Billie 
fumbled for his 
latch key. It 
turned around 
and around use- 
lessly in the 
broken lock but 
he went re- 
ligiously thru 
the ceremony of 
a householder 
before opening 
the door with a well directed kick. And so surely did 
he know what would be the scene within that he saw it 
before the door was opened. 

The studio which had once been the untidiest in the Latin 
Quarter was now so clean that Taffy wailed he was not 
allowed to get paint onto his palette any longer since 
the reign of Madame Petticoat. He was — Billie knew — 
daubing cheerfully away at his big splashy canvas now, 
stopping to pull the tail of the cat, to cheep at the canary, 
and to roar with big honest laughter over what Trilby 
was saying in her clear, joyous voice. The Laird, being 
Scotch and remembering that models cost money, would 
be working industriously, wiping his brushes on his curly 
beard which was always gay with ultramarine and scarlet 
lake, despite the agonized cries from the model throne 

each time this occurred. And Trilby 

In the darkness Little Billie smiled tenderly, visioning 
Trilby sitting majestically with the white stuff of her 
classic robe molding the sweet curves of her, one bare

were the one who 

used the tails of his 

shirt for turpentine 

rags !" She clapped 

her hands like a child at the bouquet which Little Billie 

presented courtierwise on his knee and with a glance at 

the clock was down from the model stand and, gingham 

apron over the classic robe, was making salad, chattering 

gaily all the while, "Ah. mon Dieu, but I am — how do 

you say? — hongeree ! Taffy, you shall stir the dressing — 

not so hard, Great Stupid ! Oil must be coaxed, like a 

woman, and the Laird shall cook the little pigs to a divine 

brownness. What a feast we shall have — Oh, tra-la-la-la !" 

Trilby's lips were the deeply curved lips of Sappho, 
shaped to utter music by the Lesbian Sea on some night 
of stars — the simile is Little Billie's — but when she opened 
them to sing, strange sounds come forth, a bell-toned 
monotone that always sent them into gales of merriment. 
No matter what she elected to sing, a strain from opera, 
a chanson of the boulevards, it was all the same, tuneless, 
discordant. It was not that >he had no voice, for she 
had a great deal, but that she was absolutely tone deaf. 

In the midst of their laughter, while 
the sausages were sputtering fragrantly 
over the gas-jet and Little Billie was 
setting out the bottles of rough red wine 
and the long crusty loaves, the door be- 
gan to slide open and a dirty band with 
long black-rimmed fingers appeared, fol- 
lowed by a pointed oily beard of glittering 
blackness topped with a nose like a bird's 
beak. The possessor of these endearing at- 
tributes wore a frock coat so shiny that 
the Laird arranged his tie before it osten- 
tatiously as in a mirror. His beard im- 
perfectly concealed a deficiency of linen 
and his complexion was so dingy that it 
was lucky, as Taffy whispered to Little 
Billie, that most of his face was whisker-, 
but it was his eyes which caught the 
glance. They were strange eyes, send- 
ing uneasy sensations slipping down the 
spine. Seeing them fixed unwinkingly 
now on Trilby, Billie's hands clenched, 
throttling the loaf of bread he held. 
"A thousand pardons!" writhed the 

Svengali's method of teaching the tone-deaf 
Trilby to sing, terrifies Gecko, her self- 
sacrificing and humble admirer

between poses 

newcomer, "I did not dream that I would find you at 
luncheon !" and he looked wistfully at the brown sausages 
with their succulent pink insides. 

"It was no doubt the music attracted you, eh Svengali ?" 
the Laird drawled, ironically waving a hand toward 
Trilby, "but coom in and sit ye down," he raised his voice 
to a roar, "and the little fiddler too that I can hear sniffing 
in the hall, only no mair hocus pocus, mind!" 

Gecko, pupil and shadow of his extraordinary master, 
slid in, a rabbity youth with a tremulous Adam's apple 
which he was forever trying t0 swallow. At the Laird's 
last words his pale eyes sought Trilby anxiously, and 
under cover of the noise 
and merriment he presently 
crept to her side. "You do 
not eat," he whispered, 
"you are the color of your 
robe. Oh, why did you let 
him try his power on you 
last week? Do you not 
understand when once he 
has looked deep into your 
eyes and touched your 
forehead with his finger 
tips he is your master for- 
evermore ?" He twisted 
his bony hands together, "I 
ought to know ! See he is 
looking at us now, he 
knows we are speaking of 
him. He knows every- 
thing ! It is only when I 
play that I can escape 
him " 

As tho summoned invisibly, he rose and crept back to 
Svengali's side, but the music-master, rapturously greasy, 
continued to cram bits of sausage into his mouth and 
dip onions into the salt without noticing him. At last 
with a sigh of satiety he wiped his hands upon his beard, 
burnishing it to greater effulgence. "Hocus pocus you 
call it," he smiled, yellow toothed, "yet with hypnotism 
one might do much good " 

"What good can it do to make someone believe a pack 
of lies?" Taffy growled. "Of course, the Laird here 
could use it on customers so that they'd see his daubs as 
pictures, and Trilby could use it on an audience and 

go in for concert sing-

strange sound from Little 
Billie. Hands clenched into 
fists, the boy was staring 
from Svengali to Trilby 
whose face had grown rigid 
and masklike under the 
Italian's glittering regard. 

"Damn you, take your 
eyes off her!" Little Billie 
choked and would have 
hurled himself on the 
musician but for Taffy's 
great paw. Svengali's mas- 
terfulness vanished. The 
doglike Gecko at his heels 
hurried out, frock coat tails 
abjectly flapping, while 
Little Billie writhed im- 
potently in the big Briton's 
grasp, crying shrilly, "let

Tin- color returned to her face and she flung herself 
hing unto the- model stand apparently unaware ol 
what had occurred, but Little Billie's hands, touching the 
claj with which he was modeling a winged foot, shook 
rod lath nudged the Laird frowning. Later they dis 
cussed it over glasses of absinthe at the Dead Rat, 

"The boy's falling in love with her," Taflry's rumble 
was anxious, "what would his Lady mother and his 
Reverend uncle say if he brought a little Montmartre 
model to The i >aks? Cant you hear his ancestors turning 
in their respectable graves, man?" 

"He must be daft," the Laird tugged his heard fretfully, 

"not that there's anything wrong with Trilby hut cant 
he st€ she isn't the kind an English gentleman marries?" 

"He sees she is beautiful," Taffy said gently, "he hangs 
her about with all the virtues and puts stars in her hair 
and says his prayers to her as we all of US — God pity us 

do to some woman when we are young." 

The Laird's eyes grew wistful with memories, "Aye — 
there was a spring in Dungerry and a milkmaid. But alter 
I saw her eat one day I dinna loe her any mair. Perhaps 
the lad's eyes will be opened. But Trilby is a nice little 
thing. I dinna hold with Little Billie's wanting to marry 
her, but if he didna want to marry her I would spank 
him with my own hand !" 

They did not guess that even then IJttle Billie's eyes 
were opened and he was looking out upon a different 
world in which the gargoyles of Notre Dame leaned over 
their parapets to grimace at his misery and the roseate 
mists over the boulevard were suddenly rain, and all the 
lovely laughing city was a hideous painted hag with mud 
drabbled skirts and the smirk of a skull. 

For hours the boy tramped the streets. The shadow of 

those bittei hours was upon him when he pushed • 

the door oi tin- itudlO and faced his friend*. "I'm going," 

he said hoarsely, and began to jerk things blindh into his 
bag, slides, shuts, paint brushes while the\ watched, open 
mouthed. Then his glance fell on the little white

The Laird fled cravenly from the task of telling Trilby 

that Little Billie had run away and so it fell upon 1 

to explain in clumsy words and stumbling phrases the 

reason of his going. 

"But I di not understand," Trilby cried bewilderedly , 
"all models pose in the altogether. Surely it is no sin to 
be looked at unless one is Ugly, and 1 am very prett) with 
mj clothes off, not only my foot but all over." 

It was no Use. The mind of a daughter of Montmartre 
could not comprehend the unreasonable viewpoint of an 
artist who admired beautiful things and yet would not 
have people look on beauty, but Trilby did most of her 
thinking with her heart and that told her what she must 
do to win Little Billie back. "So I return to the blan- 
chisserie," she told them wistfully, standing before them. 
a Milo in black sateen blouse and broken shoes, "I wash 
the artist's shirts, I take off the skin from my fingers and 
1 watch the feet of those who pass by our basement, for 
surely he will come back now." 

The lime blossoms fell, the old men on the quays turned 
over another dingy page, and a good deal of water pas 
thru the taps in Trilby's laundry, and suddenly Little 
Billie was back from England. "I love her." he told 
Taffy and the Laird, as tho expecting their surprise at 
his amazing discovery, "I love her because she's what she

is — if she was any different she wouldn't be Trilby. It's 
queer, as soon as people love someone they always set to 
work trying to change them over. That's what I told 
mother " 

Taffy had a vision of the haughty Lady Eleanor with her 
high-roofed ancestral nose and basilisk eye. "You — told 
your mother you loved Trilby?" he asked, almost in awe. 

"I told her I was going to marry her," Little Billie said 
a trifle grimly. After all, he was related to the high-roofed 
ancestral nose. 

And now the gendarme, leaning against the white- 
washed wall of the Passage des Abbesses, saw the in- 
gredients of other merry little feasts carried thru the dark 
old archway, and heard queer, untuneful singing, peals 
of laughter and gay voices from the studio, and some- 
times Trilby and Little Billie passed him hand in hand 
on the way to sit in a top heaven seat at the opera with a 
look on their faces that even a gendarme could under- 
stand. Allorus! What a thing to be young and in love. . . . 

The gendarme 
did not like the 
English lady and 
the gentleman in 
the shovel hat 
who stopped to 
ask him the wav

ning — ma foi, but 
Madame looked 
as tho she were 
smelling some- 
thing unpleasant 
with that nose of 
hers. And the

with her a d - 
dressed him as 
"Jen Dam" and 
seemed to think 
that the strange 
noises he was 
making were

we must talk to," 
the lady said as 
they moved 
away, "William 
must not guess

The clocks be-

night, from the 
top of the Eiffel

winked and the 
busses roared by 
in the Boulevard 
below, bringing 
loads of tourists

of looking upon 
some evil. Then 
the gendarme say the couple returning, and with them 
came the girl of the gay laughter, but now she was not 
laughing and the bunch of roses was blighted with tears. 

"I knew that we could make you see it was quite im- 
possible," the lady with the nose was saying — what a 
horrible language, that English ! A language to say harsh 
things in, to scold with, but never, never to make love in 
— "and you. promise not to see him again?" 

rhe moment of Trilby's greatest triumph was the moment that 
preceded her collapse. Svengali had won — and lost 

The light from a lantern swinging in the wind fell 
across the girl's face giving it — the gendarme thought — 
the look of one of the marble saints in the Sacre Cceur. 
A strange place for saints, Montmartre ! "I promise," 
Trilby said, taking the words one by one from her heart, 

"I promise — never to see — him again " 

It is no doubt the human life they have looked down 
upon so long that is responsible for the expressions on 
the faces of the gargoyles of Notre Dame. From their 
high perch above the city, man must seem an amusing and 
pitiful and altogether futile sort of insect rushing madly 
about and imagining his insect sorrows and desires are 
important. Little Billie told himself this and many other 
scornful bitter things in the weeks that followed when he 
wandered about Paris searching for a lost dark head in a 
world full of women whom he hated because they were 
not Trilby. He sought her in the parks, in the cafes 
and theaters, he hunted for her among the laundries and 
the shops and all the studios of the Quarter. There were 

many women. 
slim hipped, lur- 
ing eyed, women 
with little white 
hands and pretty 
lips like painted 
flowers, scarlet- 
haired hussies .of 
the varieties, 
languid models, 
pert shop girls 
with impossible 
coiffures, de- 
mi - mondaines, 
apache girl, midi- 
nettes. but Trilby 
had vanished 
without a trace. 
She had always 
been secretive 
about her home 
life : someone said 
there had been a 
small brother 
whom she had 
cared for, some- 
one else said he 
had died. . . . 

"I'm getting 
stale," Taffy 
growled, care- 
fully avoiding 
Little Billie's 
haggard look, 
"I've painted 
sidewalk cafes 
and flower ven- 
dors and children 
rolling hoops in 
the T u i 1 e r i e s 
Gardens until my 
brushes are all 
gummed up with 
sweetness. Let's 
go traveling and 
paint pictures 
with tobacco and gin and blood in 'em." 

As a cure for love-sickness, Australia may be recom- 
mended. Of course there were scars left in Little Billie's 
heart, and sometimes when the velvety dark was disturbed 
by a woman's voice crooning unevenly across the veldt, 
or when the Southern Cross was a blue blaze on the 
horizon, the scars throbbed a little, and Billie would say,

chosen books, loved books and read, 
books that hold you, each by a voice 
of its own, this is his background. 

He is a romantic recluse. He 
walks abroad as the Chevalier in

Joseph Schildkraut has given us the Chevalier in

deathless Liliom on the stage. He has now 
been signed for the Goldwyn picture, "The Master 
of Man," from Hall Caine's famous story 

studied the violin while he dreamed of being an actor, 
up to the present day when he is twenty-seven and read-

a genius of gesture. 

As to his sincerity, that is a matter of opinion. One 
may gesture sincerely. . . .

And then have you ever thought, "But people are not

But Joseph Schildkraut is "like thi>." This is the

The Girl 

Who Couldn't 

Stop Crying 



THIS really was a terrible 
d i 1 e in m a , Renee Adorer 
couldn't stop crying, It was. 
one of the most alarming little epi- 
sodes I over saw in a motion pic- 
ture studio. 

Renee had been parting from her 
old father. 

It seems that unwillingly she had 
killed a man. Tho he was a villain 
with a leer, the Northwest Mounted 
Police were after her and she had 
to fly. 

I saw her when she said good- 
bye to her father. She clung to 
him convulsively. The tears were 
streaming down her cheeks. She 
looked very little and very pitiful, 
and the tears were very, very real. 
With one last kiss and a sob, she 
broke away, and rushed — out of the 
camera area. 

Reginald Barker, the director, fol- 
lowed to congratulate her. To hijs 
surprise, she was still crying. 

"What's the matter?" he asked in 
dismay. His only answer was a 
fresh outburst of sobbing. 

Mr. Barker looked around with 
belligerent inquiry. Then the situa- 
tion dawned upon him. The little 
French girl had got her tears started 
and they wouldn't stop. He looked 
around hopelessly at Pat O'Malley 
who was costumed in scarlet, uni- 
form of the Northwest Police. Pat 
rose gallantly to the rescue. 

He picked Renee up bodily and sat her on the stum]) 
of a tree.. Then, cavorting around like a Sennett comedian, 
he pretended to take a kodak picture of her tears. 

She tried to smile but it was such a drippy, woebegone 
little smile — and it was washed away in another outburst. 

Then the director tried again. "Come on. Renee. My 
God, you know it's just a play. Come on, shake yourself 
out of it." With that he took her by both arms and gave 
her two or three little shakes. 

Her only answer was to lean on his shoulder and begin 
to cry again. 

Barker looked around at the orchestra that every 
director keeps on the sets these days. "Quick : some 
jazz," he said. 

The orchestra leader tried, "Carolina in the Morning" 
and "Mr. Gallagher and Mr. Sheehan." 

Renee slid down from the stump and made them a little 
tear-stained bow of acknowledgment: but the case was 
quite hopeless. 

"Sank you," she said in a little damp. weak, woe- 
maturated voice. Then she picked up her make-up box

Renee Adoree is not really new to the screen; but it was not until 

Reginald Barker happened to select her for an emotional pat, in a big 

outdoor story that she really found herself. He thinks she will become 

one of the finest emotional actresses ever seen on the screen 

and walked slowly away to her dressing-room, leaving 
the director and the studio staff looking like convicted 
murderers. The last I saw of her, her shoulders were 
still shaking with the convulsions of weeping. 

Renee is like the colored lady. When she mourns she 

Reginald Barker who has found a lot of them thinks 
she is the great "find" of the year. 

She is not really new to the screen. She lias been 
dubbing around in small parts for year-. It was not 
until this winter when Mr. Barker happened to select 
her for an emotional part in a big outdoor st »ry that she 
really found herself. Mr. Barker thinks she is due to 
become one of the finest emotional actresses e\ er seen 
on the screen. 

She is a little French girl, not fatally beautif'll but 
piquant and charming. She has been on the stage all 
her life. As a child she was an acrobatic dancer in France 
and was educated in England by a tutor while still rilling 
stage engagements in London.

The Celluloid Critic 

Laurence Reid Reviews the Latest Picture Plays 

A SUCCESSFUL picture is Tike a successful play. If 
it has reached the high places thru some outstand- 
ing character or situation — and if it surges for- 
ward with a compact line of action, thru which its scenes 
are neatly dovetailed, it is certain to he favorably re- 
ceived and to establish itself in the memory as a picture 
with a personality. Such documents are sure to be 

It is fitting and proper that Goldwyn should give a new 
treatment to Rex Beach's best yarn, "The Spoilers." In 
the first place it had earned a new picturization thru its 
eloquent account of life in the raw — a background which 
may only be expressed well on the screen. But what 
made "The Spoilers" so memorable was its smashing 
fight in the climax between Tom Santschi and William 

It has been said that this gory combat could never be 
equalled, much less duplicated. The very thought of it 
has inspired its present spon- 
sors in general, and Director 
Lambert Hillyer in particu- 
lar, to create a scene which 
would ring down the corri- 
dors of Time — which would 
eclipse any hand-to-hand con- 
flict ever staged before the 
searching lens of the camera. 

Mr. Reid selects "The Spoilers" as the best 
photoplay of this month, and compares the 
great Milton Sills-Xoah Beery fight with its 
former prototype, the Tom Santschi-lFilliarr. 
Farnum brawl 

The Santschi-Farnum melee compared to the Sills-Beery 
(Milton and Xoah) melee would be like trying to com- 
pare two fly-weights in action against Dempsey and 
Firpo in another ring. It's a tearing, smashing, slam- 
bang bloody battle which takes up easily twenty minutes 
— which thrusts two very earnest players in deadly com- 
bat with no quarter given or taken from either partic- 

Of course the fight is the moment which we waited 
for. Every scene is a prelude to it. And how they did 
build up to it! Here we have the vigorous account of 
a Yukon miner, a power up Dawson way, determined to 
stand up on his own feet regardless of the efforts of a 
group of wily politicians to make capital of the ignorant 
community. The net is woven around him. The law 
is against him. Every loophole has been carefully em- 
broidered so that there appears no possible chance for 
escape. And to complicate matters he is in love with a 

girl whose guardian is the 
crooked judge in collusion 
with the disciples of evil — 
claim jumpers, in Mr. Beach's 

The suspense mounts when 
you see Sills grit his teeth to 
see the conflict thru to the 
finish. Scenes — oh, many of 



them — are given up to primitive, primeval battle. There 
are introductory scuffles to the main bout. And the 
background is as much like the Alaskan country as a 
good location man can make it. So let's mark it up as a 
smashing, ripping melodrama of the big outdoors — 
adapted from a story which was destined for the screen 
— a melodrama which rushes with headlong speed 
straight to its climax. And what a climax ! Sills and 
Beery fairly leap at each other's throats. Tables, chairs, 
book-cases are overturned. The actors smash their way 
and each other's faces thru doors, windows and parti- 
tions — until you feel like crying "Stop it!" It's vivid and 
vital, this fight. The attending blowing up of the 
mines, the ride of the vigilantes, the 
crooked roulette game and the other de 
tails are merely incidental to the rip- 
tearing punch when Beery takes 
the count from Sills' good right 
fist — and left. 

A good supporting cast 
lends competent assistance — 
particularly Sam de Grasse, 
Barbara Bedford and Robert 
Edeson. Wallace MacDonald

story, "Alice 
Adams," (As- 
sociated Ex- 
hibitors) has 
been ap- 
proached with 
fine sym- 
pathetic ap- 
preciation by King Yidor, a director who is at his best in 
visualizing the simple humanities. It's a picture not de- 
pendent upon dramatic fireworks, but scores easily and 
surely because it expresses the simple things in an equally 
simple way. 

Here is a cross-section of American family life — life 
that all of us know.- The protagonist is a wistful, im- 
aginative, pathetic, day-dreaming girl who paints vivid 
fancies — who thru her pride will keep up appearances 
despite the poverty in her home. Her mother is a com- 
plaining woman — one who continually nags her husband 
because he hasn't taken the family to the heights. Her 

father is meek and mild and naturally uncomplaining. 
But he is incapable of making both ends meet. There is 
a brother who is allowed to become a wastrel simply be- 
cause his parents are more or less uninterested in him. 
And around this quartette moves a drama which touches 
tragic chords — which paints vividly and accurately — and 
at times, poignantly, discordant family life. 

The film treatment is splendid. It carries the quaint 
humor tinctured with pathetic glimpses of the novel. It 
retains all the humanities which Tarkington incorporated. 
The big vital note in the book — when Alice entertains 
her admirer at dinner and he' sees thru her sham, is deftly 
treated — with a suggestion of real subtlety. 
These characters are made real by the di- 
rector, Rqvvland V. Lee — and the play- 
ers who fit them have seemingly 
stepped from the pages of the 
book. What a memorable por- 
trayal Florence Vidor gives as 
the girl whose dreams are shat- 
tered ! How she humanizes the 
figure who was forced to swal- 
low' her pride — and Claude Gil- 
lingwater as the father presents a 
portrait of cameo fineness.

I N G 
Street" to 
the screen 
was some- 
thing of a 
task for 

since Sinclair Lewis' best-seller is based upon words in- 
stead of pictures. Taking a widely read book which has 
established its prejudices as well as its champions, it 
stands to reason that no matter how the sponsors treated 
the subject they were certain to find themselves in a jam. 
Here is a long-winded book which is often dull — which 
is unrelieved by any balancing note of humor, and yet 
the director has done a creditable job by it — even if it 
was impossible for him to save it from becoming tedious 
in its concluding reels. 

The fault with Lewis (and of course the director must 
be held responsible) is his weakness for repetition. So

are seen. They were recruited from the Chinese 
students studying in Paris. The play is about a 
rich Chinese nobleman who has a beautiful wife 
and a good friend by the name of Ton-Fon 
Tchang. The husband is blind but is very happy 
with his wife and children. He suddenly re- 
covers his sight and begins to learn that his

Flashes From the 

Of the Stage 

Caught by 

OUT on a picturesque estate on Long Island at the head waters of 
Little Neck Bay where, ninety-five years ago, small craft used to 
put in for supplies from the general store, a little bit of Southern 
France has been translated for scenes in "Zaza," Allan Dwan's production 
of the famous French play. The old general store, which was built in 
1828, has been transformed into the quaintest French home imaginable. 
It is Zaza's love nest. The grist mill, where the farmers used to come 
in the- early days to get their grain ground and a demijohn of rum, has 
been made into a thatched building by the art department, and the old 
barn which stood next to the store has been fixed over to represent a 
typical French barn. All of these buildings stand on the edge of a 
beautiful lake. Director Dwan expects to spend a week on this location 
filming scenes that are expected to be among the loveliest shown in the

Richard Barthelmess has completed "The Fighting Blade," and 
has started on another picture under John S. Robertson. It is a 
modern story, the title of which has not yet been given out, and it 
will be released before "The Fighting Blade." as they thought it wise

the first time she had seen McTeague. It was in 
his office. She and Marcus and all the Sieppes 
had gone on a picnic and the party had gotten 
rough. Trina fell out of a swing and broke her 
tooth. But Marcus had comforted her by telling 
her his friend McTeague who was a dentist — of 
sorts, would fix it up for her. 

So she had gone the next day to McTeague's 
office. Maria was there begging for junk, which 
lowly performance she regarded as an entirely legitimate 

business razy in the

coming to his office. The 
last time she came he had 


In a fit of maudlin sympathy for his pal, McTeague, Marcus had 

surrendered his girl to the dentist's awkward love-making. Below: 

Trina sends McTeague the mammoth gold tooth he had so long 

coveted for his office 


McTeague took her fingers play- 
fully between his strong white teeth. 

"Oh, you hurt," she cried, but he 
only laughed. 

In a much poorer room on a much 
poorer street Maria and Zerkow, the 
junk dealer, started their miserable 
life together. "And so my father 
buried his plate," Maria was saying, 
rolling her big vacant eyes. "Four 
dozen gold dishes, all sizes, six 
platters, all sizes, two great big soup 
tureens, eighteen " 

"But where, merciful God, 
where?" Zerkow interrupted wring- 
ing his dirty hands. "Where did 
your father hide all this gold?" 

"I cant seem to remember," Maria 
said without expression. Her hus- 
band seemed about to choke her. 
"But I'll think hard, Zerkow," she 
added hastily. "Give me but a little 
time and Maria will find the place for 

He had to be content with that 
altho it was only one of many times 
this identical conversation had taken 
place. Zerkow dreamed of that 
mysterious buried gold at night. He 
thought about it by day. It was for 
that he had married the half-wit 
Maria and lived on the price of the 
gold fillings she managed to steal 
from McTeague. 

As for the McTeagues, they pros- 
pered well enough. Trina began to 
save money to add to the five thou- 
sand. It got to be a regular mania, 
with her. She put it in a little trunk 
she kept under the bed, the key of 

given her ether — to save her from pain. When she 
lay back in the chair unconscious, he kissed her 
moist soft mouth over and over again, hungry 
devouring kisses. She came to, shivering, but not 
with fear. 

They were engaged after that and now they 
were to be married in a few days. McTeague's 
practice was well enough, but with five thousand 
dollars they had nothing much to worry about. 
Trina took the money to her Uncle, for whose toy 
shop she used to paint little wooden dolls, and he 
deposited it in a bank for her. She couldn't bear 
to spend it, but she did go out and buy a mammoth 
gold tooth that McTeague had long coveted for 
his office. He was touched and thanked her with 
many bearlike hugs and rude kisses. He never 
had been particularly articulate and now he was 
reduced to a gauche demonstrativeness that alter- 
nately thrilled and disgusted Trina. 

After they were married, McTeague suggested 
that they take better lodgings. 

"On your pay, we cant afford it," was Trina's 
brief rejoinder. 

"But your five thousand dollars !" muttered 
McTeague considerably surprised. 

"Stays where it is," snapped Trina. Then 
quickly seeing the offended look in her husband's 
dull eyes, "Love your Trina?" 

"Yes," he answered and put his arms around her. 

"Love her big?" murmured the girl running her 
slim fingers thru his bushy hair.

McTeague k new- 
nothing of this. He 
was fairly well con- 
tent. He was still 
under the spell of 
Trina's superior re- 
finement. He loved 
her daintiness, her 
great ropes of hair, 
the rich vital odor of 
it, her little hands 
with their little 
pointed fingers, which 
he loved to bite in 
boorish gaiety, altho 
she a 1 w a y s com- 
plained that he hurt 

At the end of three 
years McTeague de- 
cided they would 
move into a little 
house, the rent of 
which was thirty-five 
dollars. Trina almost 
screamed. "Thirty- 
five dollars ! We 
couldn't possiblv 
afford it." 

"But the five thou- 
sand," said McTeague 
again. "You pay half 
and I'll pay half. 
You've been saving a lot of money anyway. We can use 
that. There must be at least " 

"No, no," cried Trina. "There isn't any. I haven't 
any money at all saved. Take a better house. You're 
crazy. We ought to take a cheaper place." 

"You're getting to be a regular miser," retorted 
McTeague angrily. "You're worse than old Zerkow." 
And he went away and rented the house anyway. 

Then one day he received an official-looking letter from 
somebody or other enjoining him from the further prac- 
tice of dentistry, because he didn't have a diploma. 
McTeague was utterly stunned. "A diploma, a diploma ! 
What is that, Trina? I've been practising dentistry for 
twelve years. Why should I have to have a diploma?" 

Trina couldn't tell any more than he could, but her 
woman's intuition divined the cause of this catastrophe. 
It was Schouler's work of course, Marcus Schouler, who 
had never forgiven McTeague for winning, not Trina 
exactly, but the five thousand. If he could only have

McTeague's idleness had become habitual,

to give up some of her beloved money' No, 1 
Never. Never. Never. The clink to her ears, the glitter 
to her eyes, the cold smooth feel to her fingers, meant 
more to her now than love or peace or life itself. In 
fact, her money was all of those things to her. Only 
McTeague still mattered a little. She could understand 
old Zerkow now, whom she had always despised before. 
He too hoarded gold, but such a little beside her shining 
pile! She felt sorry for him now, old Zerkow who had 
been fooled by Maria's lack-wit tale of her father's plate, 
not a single piece of which ever existed save in her own 
muddled mind. Trina would never give up her money, 

McTeague slowly abandoned his profession. For days 
at a time he sat gloomily in his own dental chair with noth- 
ing to do. "We'll be poor together." said Trina. and lead 
him to a dingy back hall room. "This is all we can afford." 

"Afford, hell !" McTeague sneered. "You and your 
five thousand three hundred ! You make me sick." 

"My money wont be touched," shrilled Trina. 

"Well I wont live in this dump," McTeague snarled, and 
bit her fingers. 



"All right," brought out Trina triumphantly, tho she 
winced from the pain. "Then pay the rent for this 

Hut of course he couldn't pay the rent. He had no 
money at all. Trina was supporting him, so they sold 
their furniture and moved in, and McTeague started to 
look for work. The grind began. Trina took to whittling 
dolls again for her Uncle's toy shop. She wore gloves 
to protect her hands but still, she had become a sloven. 
McTeague came home disheartened, night after night. 
He didn't know anything but dentistry and nobody would 
give him a job. Once he asked Trina for money to buy 
beer. She flew into a rage. When he did manage to get 
a job, she took all his pay away from him and he sub- 
mitted like a docile bear. In spite of their poverty, Trina's 
pile in her trunk kept on growing. She got one hundred 
and fifty dollars from the sale of their furniture. She lied 
cleverly about it to McTeague and spent more sweet stolen 
hours, counting and polishing endlessly the hoarded coins. 

Maria came over to complain of Zerkow. "He's never 
been the same since the child died," she mumbled, in her 
hoarse unnatural voice. "He whips me with a long black 
whip. God ! How it do hurt ! He says he'll kill me if 
I dont tell him where my father's plate is hid. I dont 

know where it is. Seems like as if " The woman 

broke off shudderingly. 

"Don't be scared, Maria," said Trina not unkindly. 
"He'll never kill you, because if he does, he'll never find 
out where the treasure is. See?" 

"Brew me a drop of tea," whined Maria, but Trina 
said she had none, and Maria went home where the frantic 
Zerkow, his 
patience at an 
end, awaited 

In the morn- 
ing Zerkow's 
body was 
found floating 
in the river 
and Maria lay 
at home, her 
head half 
severed from 
her body. 
Trina wept 
with fear and 
horror. "Two 
people dead," 
she thought, 
"and all for a 
treasure that 
never existed 

" And she 

buried her face 
in the golden 
heap in her 
trunk and was 

They moved 
into Maria 
and Zerkow's 
rooms, horrible 
and filthy tho 
they were. 
The rent was 

almost nothing. McTeague's idleness became habitual. 
Trina drove him out of the house every day rain or shine 
to look for work. He took to haunting the saloons and 
muttering against her. "Miser," he said over and over to 
himself. "She's a mean, rotten miser." He sold his beloved 
gold tooth for five dollars. Finally he sold His canary 
birds that he had loved. Trina demanded the money he

fingers for you. I'm sick of your damn stingy ways." 
''You dont love me," said Trina starting to cry. 
"No, by G ," shouted the man and left her stand- 
ing in Zerkow's mouldy doorway. 

Trina locked herself in her room with the grief-assuag- 
ing gold. She played with it with her poor mutilated 
fingers stained with liquid gilt from the toys. They 
glittered like the gold. Unholy glitter. 

At eight o'clock McTeague had not come back and 
Trina went out to hunt for him. She went back to their 
old apartment. She went to his old office. She walked 
down to the river front. She wanted him very much. 
She had almost made up her mind to give up some of her 
precious savings by the time she got home. Once in her 
room, she fainted dead away. The lock of her trunk 
had been broken and the gold was gone. 

In the morning a doctor came. He shook his head over 
her infected fingers. "They must be amputated," he 
said seriously, "or you will die." 

Trina moaned, "Oh, my gold pieces ! I could forgive 
him for this — my sore fingers — but not for stealing my 

money. I must get it back — my beautiful money " 

So three fingers were cut off and Trina found work 
scrubbing floors in a kindergarten. She mended the lock 
on her trunk, and started another bag of gold. But it was 
so slow to grow. She thought longingly of the five thou- 
sand dollars until she couldn't stand the strain any longer. 
She went to her Uncle and had him cash her check in 
twenty-dollar gold pieces. She took the heavy canvas 
bag home and untying the cords let the glittering rain 

pour down 
into her treas- 
ure chest. She 
took each piece 
between her 
little teeth. She 
held them 
against her 
cheek. She 
spread them 
out on her nar- 
row bed and

Photographs by Reiss, Berlin 

"Moiuia Vanna" is undoubtedly one of Maurice Maeterlinck's 
greatest plays. It has now been interpreted in terms of 
the screen by a German film company and will soon be 
released in the United States by our own Fox. An interesting 
fact about "Monna Vanna" is that it was inspired by and 
written for Georgette Le Blanc, Maeterlinck's first wife. 
When she divorced him she refused to accept any settlement 
from him, taking only this play as justly hers 



Paul Wegner, the distinguished actor who played "The Golem," 
is cast as Guido Colonna, who is called upon to sacrifice his 
young wife for the starving Pisans. The famous and beautiful' 
Lee Parry plays Monna Vanna. A gorgeously picturesque era, 
this fifteenth century Italian romance reconstructs for your edi- 
fication and delight. We earnestly commend this sort of thing 
to your consideration

IT looks as tho the little girls were going to climb back onto the 
throne after all. Some one had an inspiration a while back to 
change the screen type. Especially as regards altitude. Tall 
girls like Nita Naldi and Aileen Pringle and Katharine McDonald 
were thought to be about to rage. But the three sensations of the 
Hollywood season have all been tabloid young ladies. 

They are Mary Philbin, who knocked a home-run in "Merry Go 
Round"; Lucile Rickson who, Marshall Xeilan thinks, is the sei 
tion of a dozen seasons and one of the most wonderful prospects 
he has ever known ; and Renee Adoree. 

Miss Adoree is Tom Moore's wife. She is a little French girl 
who has been working as an extra girl for some time, but got a 

sudden chance while 
Reginald Barker was mak- 
ing a Canadian Mounted 
Police picture originally 
called "The Law Bringers" 
but named everything else 
at various times since then. 
As a little French Canadian 
girl who is being brought 
back to be punished for 
murder by the man who 
loved her, she gives one of 
the finest performances 
that Hollywood has seen 
this year and seems to be- 
token the start of another 
big screen career.

They gave a trial per- 
formance of her picture the other 
night in a little theater in the suburbs. 
Everyone was very anxious to see the 
young star. At last some one dis- 
covered in a loge a girl with her hat 
hunched down over her eyes and a pair 
of dark glasses. Whereupon the 
official nudge was passed. "Ah, the 
modest star concealing herself." 

After the performance the agitated 
and adoring audience followed her in 
a body to the street. Whereat the 
young lady looked about in mild sur- 
prise ; took off her goggles and dis- 
closed herself as somebody's mild and 
inoffensive stenographer. 

There is a dark rumor that lierr 
Ernst Lubitsch may go back to tin 
Mary Pickford studio as Mary's per- 
manent director. His contract with 
the Hamilton Company having ex- 
pired, he was installed at the Warner 
Studio where he was to direct 
"Debureau." Something seemed to 
have failed to "jell" however, and 
Mary is reputed to be negotiating with 
him to return. 

Lubitsch is unwilling to direct 
Mary's next picture, "Dorothy Ver- 
non," however. Mary makes no secret 
of the fact that she thinks he is the

Deep, dark and mysteri-

to the violdwyn Studios, 
with which his Cosmopoli-

Miss Marion Davies, the 
star ^i his pictures, he stalks solemnly 
thru the place. In his wake the other 
day came a tall, distinguished looking 
gentleman who hail a pad of paper and 
pencil. Here and there he would stop 
people whom he met and inquire, 
"Mas I inquire who you are and what 
you do?" And when told by the 
trembling one, he would reply vaguely. 
"Ah >es," and walk on. Now what

Regarding the last minute retire- 
ment of Evelyn Brent from the lead- 
ing part and the substitution of 
Julanne Johnston, the "low down" is 
not so sensational, after all. Nobody 
believed the official announcement that 
Miss Brent was leaving because 
Douglas did not make enough pictures 
per year. The real reason is said to 
he simply that Miss Brent had become 
somewhat too heavy for the extremely 
svelte lines of the heroine. Xot so 
thrilling after all.

the fact of the boy's being taken out of school at thirteen 
to be made into an actor, everyone wondered what would 
happen at the train when he came in. Douglas, Sr., grace- 
fully evaded the difficulty by sending his brother to mingle 
with the in-laws of his former wife. Doug, Jr., goes over 
to his father's studio to play tennis with Dad every day. 

A terrifying rumor creeps out that Hope Hampton 
yearns to emote and be Juliet and all such stuff. At 
present, she is making "The Gold Diggers" at Warner 
Brothers Studio. One of the thrills of "The Gold Diggers" 
is to be Louise Fazenda as a society queen. Altho she is 
never seen ordinarily except with her hair slicked back 
and falling all over something, Louise is in fact a very 
pretty girl. 

"How do you like being all dressed up?" some one 
asked as she came on the set with a low-necked gown. 
"Well," considered Louise, "it's all right, but you have 

to be so awfully clean. But 
anyhow it makes me feel 
wicked and expensive." 

Let it be strictly under-

favor in the high places of 
Hollywood for the next few 
weeks. Elinor Glyn has re-

To really "belong" now, you must 
have received a message from the 
spirit land from Honore Balzac, the 
French novelist. His grandniece is in 
Hollywood, hovering around the pro- 
duction of her revered ancestor's 
story, "The Magic Skin," being made 
into a picture by the Achievement 
Films of Philadelphia. It appears that 
Mile. Balzac, who is a thrilling young 
lady with onyx eyes, has a line, now 
and then, from the spirit world in the 
hand-writings of the late Balzac. Ev- 
eryone crowds into her dressing-room 
when the spirit moves. From his 
spirit world, Balzac knows just when 
all the assistant directors will get a 
job with the megaphone ; when all the 
little extra girls are to be starred and 
the other secrets.

qAs wonderful for a quick brilliant polish 
as Cutex is for smooth cuticle 

For years you have known Cutex. You 
have blessed it a thousand times when 
you have been in such a hurry and you 
have just bad to get those neglected nails 
shapely and gleaming. You have adored 
the little manicure sets. You have 
marvelled at the magic of their cake and 
powder polishes. 

Now, after years of fastidious experi- 
ment, Cutex has perfected a wonderful 
new Liquid Polish, 
as splendid for a 
brilliant, lasting 
polish as Cutex is 
^ for giving soft, 
even cuticle. 

This brilliant new polish spreads smooth 
and thin and gives a lasting rosy lustre. 
Even a -week's dishwashing leaves it 
gleaming and unbroken 

No separate remover is needed. 
Just use a touch of the polish itself 
and ivipe off each nail 

In every particular, this Cutex Liquid 
Polish is ideal. It spreads smooth and 
thin. It dries almost instantly into such 
a lovely gleaming smoothness. It never 
leaves ridges or brush marks and it would 
never think of cracking or peeling off. 
You will be simply delighted with its 
dainty rose lustre that lasts for a whole 
week. No matter how incessantly you 
use your hands, your nails will keep their 
smooth unbroken brilliance. Even water 
does not dim the lustre 

No bother of a separate 
polish remover 

And finally here is just another new 
convenience. You need never have the 
bother of a separate remover to take off 
the old polish. Just a touch of the polish 
itself wiped off while it is still wet will 
leave the nail absolutely free of the old 
polish and ready for the new application. 
Cutex Liquid Polish, just like all the 
other Cutex preparations, is 35c separately. 
Or ask for the sets in which it comes. 
Sets are from 60c to $3.00. 

Special Introductory Set that includes 
the new polish —only 12c

IV hat will her face be in one- 
in five -in ten years' time? 

NEW surroundings —new responsibilities — new adjustments 
to life. And with all these a new loveliness in her face. 
Yet m .1 tew vears it has gone! What has become or it? 

Should she have trusted this loveliness to keep on renewing 
itself through the strain of her new responsibilities? Did she 
allow the soft brilliance of her clear skin to grow dull — its 
smoothness to be marred by little roughnesses? So many girls 
lose this young freshness in the first few years of marriage. 

But today they know that this loveliness must be guarded, 
that it will be lost unless the right ore be given. 

Many a wife has learned that she can keep her skin supple 
and lovely by giving it regularly the two fundamental things 
it needs to keep it young — a perfect cleansing at night and n 
delicate freshening and protection for the day. And she has 
learned that the Pond's Method of two creams based on these 
two essentials of her skin, brings more wonderful results than 
any other. 

Two Creams each different — each marvelous 
in its effect on her skin 

Two Creams she would not give up for any others in the 
world! First the exquisite cleansing of Pond's Cold Cream 
that leaves her skin so delightfully fresh, so luxuriously soft. 
Then the instant freshening she adores with Pond's Vanishing 
Cream and its careful protection that she has learned prevents 
coarsening. These two creams keep for her the smoothness of 
texture and that particular fresh transparency that she wants to 
be her charm ten years from now as it is today. 

Keep your skin charmingly young — for years 

Do this tonight. With the finger tips apply Pond's Cold 
Cream freely. The very fine oil in it softens your skin and 
penetrates every pore. Let it stay on a minute — now wipe it 
off with a soft cloth. The black that comes off shows you 
how carefully this cream cleanses. Do this twice. Your skin 
looks fresh and is beautifully supple. 

Then in the morning, smooth on Pond's Vanishing Cream 
lightly over your whole face. Now if you wish, rouge — 
powder. How smooth and velvety your face feels to your 
hand. The appearance of your skin and the compliments of 
your friends for as long as you use these Two Creams will prove 
to you how wonderful they keep your skin. Begin tonight to 
use Pond's Two Creams regularly — buy both creams in anv 
drug or department store. The Pond's Extract Company.

Keeping your 

child's hair ^ 
beautiful ^ 

li hat a mother can do to keep 
her child 's hair healthy —fine, soft 
and silky — bright, fresh-looking 
and luxuriant 

THE beauty of your child's hair depends 
upon you, upon the care you give it. 

Shampooing it properly is the mosl im- 
portant thing. 

It is the shampooing which brings out all 
the real life and lustre, the natural wave and 
color, and makes the hair soft, fresh and 

While children's hair must have frequent 
and regular washing to keep it beautiful, their 
fine, young hair and tender scalps cannot 
stand the harsh effect of ordinary soaps. The 
free alkali in ordinary soaps soon dries the 
scalp, make-; the hair brittle and ruin- it. 

That is why discriminating mothers, every- 
where, new u-e Mulsified cocoanut oil sham- 
poo. This clear, pure, and entirely greaseless 
product cannot possibly injure, and it does 

not dr\ the scalp or make the hair brittle, no 
matter how often you use it. 

When oily, dry or dull 

li your child's hair is too oily, or too dry; 
il it is dull and heavy, lifeless, stiff and gum- 
my; if the strands cling together, and it feds 
harsh and disagreeable to the touch: or if 

dandruff is accumulating, it im- 
proper shampooing. 

You will be delighted to see how easy it is 
to keep your child's hair looking beautiful. 

when you use Mulsified cocoanut oil shampoo. 
The quick, easy way 

Two or three teaspoonfuls of Mulsified in a 
CUp or glass with a little warm water is suf- 
ficient to cleanse the hair and scalp thoroughly. 

Simply pour the Mulsified evenl) over the 
hair and rub it in. It makes an abundance of 
rich, creamy lather, which rinses out quickly 
and easily, removing ever) particle of dust, dirt, 
dandruff and excess oil the chief causes of 
all hair troubles. 

After a Mulsified shampoo you will find the 
hair will dry quickly and evenly and have 
the appearance of In'ing much thicker and 
heavier than it really is. It keeps (he scalp

The Ol' Lady. — No, I remember your letter well. I wish 
you could have had a dictagraph in my office when I read 
your letter. You would have heard some nice things. So you 
dont think the falcon in "Robin Hood" should have had a bonnet 
on. Maybe you're right. I agree with you on the second, but 
you want to calm down to low speed on your third. Yes, Arline 
Pretty is. Thanks, and do come again. 

Ginger.— Thanks for your valuable hints on how to economize. 
What we all want however is some hints on how to live without 
economizing. About Herbert Rawlinson — he was born in England 
and is not married now. Vincent Coleman is married. Baby 
Peggy's parents are alive and she is playing in Universal's 
"Editha's Burglar." 

Joe C. — Welcome, since this is your first letter to me. Betty 
Compson is at present in Europe playing in pictures. Gloria 
Swanson is not married now. Thanks, and come again. 

Reggie. — Yes, Reggie is a cute name as you say, but what is 
the rest of it? 

Ramon Novarro Fan. — You are a wonder. Most girls would 
rather admit that they are thirty than to admit that they snore. 
His real name is Ramon Sammanyagos. Address him at the 
Metro Studios, 1025 Lillian Way, Los Angeles, Cal. 

Galee. — I cant say that I agree with you. I prefer feasting to 
fasting. Ask Edward our office boy. He knows. Thanks for the 
information. Constance Talmadge is five feet five. Well I am 
glad you dont think I am a woman. 

Pauline B. — So you are in love : Whew ! Love is like hash, 
you never can tell what you are likely to find in it. Yes, the 
Valentines are touring at this writing. No, "Footlights" is one 
play, and "Footlights and Shadows" another. Yes, Richard Bar- 
thelmcss is quite in love with his baby. 

John Z. — You mustn't mind that. A woman is built to worry 
about somebody's staying out late at night, and if it isn't a man, 
it's the hired girl, or the cat. Thanks, that was Jack Mower 
as the policeman in "Manslaughter." My error, please forgive. 
Cullen Landis and Helene Chadwick are married, but not to each 
other. Thomas Meighan at the Famous Players Studio, 
Astoria, L. I. 

E. F. L. — Thanks — you say that you know Malcolm McGregor 
is married and has a daughter three or four years old. 

Dolly Bubbles. — Thanks for the violet. It doesn't .require 
nerve to write to me. Thomas Meighan in "The Ne'er Do Well" 
and "Homeward Bound." Marie Walcamp is not playing now. 
Yes, Leatrice Joy is 24. No but Juanita Hanson expects to go 
on . the stage. Thomas Meighan was born in Pittsburgh. In 
January — the fifth. Yes indeed, to your P. S. 

Freckles. — The trouble is, many people when they get married,- 
quit being friends. Here goes — Jack Holt is married and has 
three children. Playing in "A Gentleman of Leisure" for Famous 

Temperamental Sixteen. — I suppose the reason that so many 
people tell me their troubles is because they haven't anybody 
else to tell them to. Misery loves 
company, but company does not love 
misery. No, Kenneth Harlan is 
not married yet. Flo Hart was his 
first wife. Gloria Swanson is 
twenty-six. Lewis Stone is mar- 
ried and Viola Dana was born in 
Brooklyn. So long. 

Mavis M. — You seem to have 
more respect for the opinions of 
our ancestors than I have. Since 
they came first, are they not the 
younger, and therefore the less ex- 
perienced. Yes, you were right. Ken- 
neth Harlan and Florence Vidor are 
playing in "The Virginian." You have 
the same favorites I have. Righto !

Betty Marie. — I am not so good as you think I am. I have 
many vices, but my principal vice is advice. Kenneth Harlan 
has been married once. That was Lloyd Hughes. 

Fanny H. — Very few companies are buying original ^rripts 
these days. You want to write a stage play in order to make 
money in the movies. About two hundred words to a reel. 

Tinker Bob. — I dont mind answering questions, but when I 
am asked such questions as What is the secret of life — that 
ignis fatuus of the scientists of all ages, and about the atomic 
theory in reference to ether, and about the adequacy or inade- 
quacy of vaccine, about the physical basis of solar chemistry, 
about the immortality of the soul, about the theory of the cloud 
belts of Jupiter and Saturn being raised by the sun's heat, about 
the single authorship of the Iliad, and so on, I must reluctantly 
and humbly say, "I pass." You want more of Pat and Micky 
Moore. Just a little — more ! 

Y. Y. U. R. — Glad you liked the music. Even a hand-organ 
sounds good to a person in love. So you dont think I am as old 
as I say, my answers are too peppy. I sprinkle them with cayenne 
you know. Claire Windsor in "The Acquittal" with Norman 
Kerry and Richard Travers. 

Ruddy's Friend. — He's got plenty of them too. You know 
that there was a disagreement in his contract which forbids Val- 
entino from playing in any other company but Famous Players 
for almost two years. 

Hilary T. — Well, in the long run you will find that it is much 
cheaper to learn from other people's experiences than to let them 
learn from yours. Casson Ferguson is no relation to Elsie Fer- 
guson. At this writing the Bushmans are traveling, but mail 
will reach them at the Hotel Majestic, New York City. 

Marie C. — So you have heard a lot about Henry VIII, but 
you want to know more. Did you know that he applied unsuccess- 
fully to the Pope for a divorce from Catherine of Aragon, his 
wife; so he had himself declared head of the church; married 
Anne Boleyn after the convocations of York and Canterbury had 
declared his marriage with Catherine invalid. He had Anne Boleyn 
executed in 1536 and married Jane Seymour ten days after the 
execution; in 1538 he was excommunicated by the Pope. His third 
wife having died in 1537, he married Anne of Cleves in 1540; was 
divorced from her the same year and married Catherine Howard, 
who was executed on a charge of adultery in 1542, and married 
Catherine Parr in 1543 and she survived him. Not such a dull 
life. What ! Well I am glad you received Ramon Novarro's 
picture. Now I suppose you are happy. Thanks. 

Patricia P. — Joseph Striker was Jacques in "The Woman in 

Marilyn C. — I dont see how they can keep up your spirits 
by preventing us from putting them down. Kenneth Harlan is 
twenty-eight. No, I am not married. Single blessedness for 

Margaret R— But they do say that when Hope Hampton 
arrived in California three of the four Warner Brothers were 

at the train to meet her and she was 
presented with a $3,000 automobile 
which came as a total surprise. 
Aren't some people lucky? Lloyd

complexion, according to whether the 
skin is properly prepared for natural 
restoration or carelessly left to the 
heavy hand of time. 

It a woman retires with her pores 
filled with the dust and grime of the 
day, with her skin dried and rough- 
ened, wrinkled by mental concentra- 
tion or worry, then the night hours 
will serve to perpetuate these faults. 

How to Keep the Skin in Condition 

But if she will follow the simple 
night treatment recommended she can 
clear the pores, soften and soothe the 
skin, relax the facial muscles, subdue 
the wrinkles, and nourish the under- 
lying tissues. 

First, a cleansing with Pompeian 
Night Cream, then a second applica- 
tion gently smoothed into the pores, 
and she is ready to let the great re- 
storer, "balmy sleep," repair the rav- 
ages of the day. 

The Twin Treatment 

The twin complexion treatment of 
Pompeian Day Cream and Pompeian 
Night Cream provides the two essen- 
tials of day-time protection and night- 
time restoration. If faithfully used, 
these two preparations alone will en- 
able any woman to greatly prolong 
her hold on a youthful complexion.

S f)ti iii I '( \n\' in the Autumn 


mlc .1 woman is In her l.rst hrulth 
with the beginning >>i the autumn* 

Mil t how about her skin } 

!• rci|ucntly she is aware she 
has been negligent in her tare of it 
during the l.i/y months of summer. 

I have said it before, and I will con- 
tinue 10 say, " Consistency \tlhe virtue 
in caring for your skin." You are 
nourishing its tissues; and it is very 
like your body — you can't cat a sur- 
feit of good food for a week and then 
forget to eat for the week that follows! 
Yet you do this when you use com- 
plexion creams only part 0/ the lime. 

*At CKjght — 

Soup and water is the habitual way of 
most women in cleansing the skin; hut 
Pompeian Night Cream is, in many cases, 
more thoroughly cleansing. 

Pompeian Night Cream may be used as 
lavishly as the individual user desires; 
there is no such thing as using too much, 
but enough should be used to cover every 
part and feature of the face, as well as the 
neck and the arms, if they too would be 
kept in beautiful condition. 

I do not advise too much rubbing and 
massaging — just enough to thoroughly 
distribute the cream. When you remove 
it with a soft cloth, all dirt and dinginess 
is also removed, leaving your skin soft 
and smooth and lovely to the touch. 

In the -Scorning — 
In the morning you will find that the 
night treatment has prepared your skin 
to gratefully accept an application of 
Pompeian Day Cream. This is a founda- 
tion cream for the day's powder and rouge, 
and it is a protection to the skin as well. 

Then the 'Powder — 

If the autumn finds the skin still some- 
what darker than usual, you should use a 
darker tint of powder than you custom- 
arily do. Pompeian Beauty Powder in the 
Rachel tint may be used on naturally fair 
complexions until care has restored their 
own delicate pinks and white tones, when 
one may again use the White or Flesh 

Cover the face and neck well with the 
powder, and then dust it off lightly and 
evenly, moistening the eyebrows, eye- 
lashes, and lips to remove any traces of 
powder from them.

It is a grand affair in honor of the 
Centennial of the Monroe Doctrine. 
It isn't clear just what the Monroe 
Doctrine had to do with the motion 
picture industry. But anyhow the 
United States Government was suffi- 
ciently impressed to issue special 
souvenir half dollars. 

Bill Hart, who has gone thru a 
long cruel experience with his domes- 
tic trials and tribulations, has decided 
to return to the business of making 
motion pictures. He is to begin at 
once at the Lasky studio. 

A terrible rumor has it that Jane 
Cowl intends to film "Juliet" when 
she comes to the Coast with her 
dramatic company. All this will do 
will be to drive two young ladies to 
the brink of suicide. Both Norma 
Talmadge and Mary Pick ford hanker 
and yearn to play Juliet on the screen 
sometime. Norma wants to wait un- 
til she can get Valentino as Romeo ; 
Mary's difficulty is that she cant per- 
suade Doug to play Romeo. She 
realizes that it would be taking a long 
box-office chance to film Shakespeare ; 
a handicap which would be overcome 
if Douglas and she were to appear to- 
gether. + + + 

One of the most interesting open- 
ings ever held in Hollywood took 

place at the Writers' Club the other 
night when "The Talisman," the 
first production of the Associated 
Authors, was shown. It is practi- 
cally a sequel of "Robin Hood," tak- 
ing up the adventures of Richard the 
Lion Hearted after Robin Hood 
turned back to England. The audi- 
ence was thrilled when the King re- 
ferred feelingly on the screen to the 
"Earl of Huntingdon whom I treated 
unjustly" and a piece of the real 
"Robin Hood" film flashed on, with 
Doug and all the rest of it. 

Charlotte Merriam, one of the 
newest invaders of Hollywood, was 
an army girl ; born in Fort Sheridan. 
Her father is Col. Henry Clay 
Merriam, commanding officer at Fort 
Preble. She shoots and rides and 
swims. On a recent location tour in 
Inyo county where she was making 
exteriors for "The Huntress," 
Colleen Moore and Snitz Edward- 
collaborated on a barbecue for fort) 
Indians who worked in the piece.

Charlie Chaplin has settled the 
question which has been agitating the 
public mind. He is not going to re- 
tire. After he finishes the cutting of 
"Public Opinion," the dark and 
tragic play which he has been direct- 
ing, he will take a vacation ; then be- 
gin work on a five-reel comedy.

tint which is fast re- 
placing the unscien-

But how many are 
awareof thepeculiarly 
interesting story of its 

We are apt to take 
the most marvelous 
discoveries of this age 
as a matter of fact — ' 
even one of such im- 
portance to the realm 
of beauty as a tint that 
is a perfect match for 
Nature's own artistry ! 
Suddenly science 
gives the world of 
women a tint which 
tinges the cheeks in such a true 
tone as the very strongest sun's 
rays, or the weirdest effects of 
night lighting cannot separate 
from the underlying flesh tone, 
and we accept it without thought 
of how it came to be. 
Yet behind the simple, 
single tint which gives 
any and all complex- 
ions a divine and per- 
fectly natural mantle 
of color is the story of 
man's indomitable 
perseverance — two 
years' ceaseless ex- 
periment — over two 
hundred failures, and 
eventual success. 

The search for the 
perfect tint led a digni- 
fied scientist to a cel- 
lar's depths — and to 
the roof of a city's tall skyscraper. 
Tint after tint — tone upon tone — 
were tried in every conceivable 
light. In noon's glare, atop a high 
roof. In the streets below, where 
the sun's rays filtered through 

'In goon's Glare, Atop a High Roof 

fog and smoke. And in the arti- 
ficial lights of night— trying lights 
in which old-fashioned rouges all 
became the same ghastly, or un- 
lovely purplish red. 
On a patient assistant's cheeks 
shade after shade was 
tried. Some of the 
shades required in- 
gredients from far 
countries— many were 
days in the blending. 
Then, suddenly it 

'^Beneath Trying Artificial Light 

The Tint That Was 
Tried In 'Desperation 

One morning the sci- 
entist used in his mor- 
tar one of the rarest 
ingredients in the lab- 
oratory. It was of pe- 
culiar orange hue. 
Scarcely a color to try 
on the cheeks! But he idly applied 
it on his assistant's cheeks — and a 
startling change took place. The 
peculiar orange tint altered in- 
stantly to the true tone of the skin 
beneath! Still doubtful that he 

had found the one key tint for 

any complexion under all 
conditions in every light 
they Inn ried to the n-ot and 
put the new tint to the mmm- 

te t of direct Bunlight '1 li<- 
same beautifully diffused, nat- 
ural color! Down toadarkened 
room, where neither jdariiik' 
incandescent lamps nor var- 
JM0 iously shaded rays of 
electric light revealed 
anything but a color- 
ing that appeared .'■ 
ture's own! The same 
day, preparations 
were started to supply 
the demand that such 
a discovery was cer- 
tain to create. Now, 
this new Princess Pat 
Tint is an article of 
standard use. 

It enhances the color of 
countless women who had 
steadfastly declined to use 
any of the old-fashioned 
rouges which are so obvious 
in even the kindest light. 

Trincess Tat Tint is Waterproof! 

Where the new natural tint is made, fur- 
ther improvements have transpired; a less 
costly use of the chief ingredient has 
brought its price within reach of all; an 
entirely new process has rendered it ab- 
solutely waterproof! Even a morning in 
the surf will not streak it! Princess Pat 
Tint is not affected by perspiration, so it 
is worn without concern the day long, or 
evening through! Yet it vanishes instantly 
with a touch of cream, or use of soap. 
On any complexion, remember there is 
need for only one shade. There is no un- 
certainty of matching; for the one tint 
is instantaneously 
transformed to 
blend with any type 
— blonde, medium 
or brunette; and this 
tint may be applied 
as lightly or as full 
and deep as you 
choose — with the

A new use for an 
old friend 

Many users of Listerine have never discovered 
the unusual properties as a perspiration deodorant, 
peculiar to this well-known antiseptic. 

Many times you don't have access to — or time for 
— a tub or shower. Yet so often your fastidious in- 
clinations will not permit you to be comfortable in 
going out without considering these things. Right 
there Listerine steps in as a friend in need. You 
simply apply this dependable antiseptic with a towel 
or wash cloth. Note how delightful and exhilarating 
the effect really is. 

It is an interesting thing that this scientific 
preparation that has been used for so many years as 
a surgical dressing should possess these remarkable 
properties as a deodorant. 

Moreover it is absolutely safe. It will not irritate 
the most sensitive skin nor injure the most fragile 
fabric. You will be delighted with this new use. —

The Girl Who Couldn't 
Stop Crying 

{Continued from page 39) 

When the World War broke out, 
she was dancing with her brother and 
sister in Brussels. There was a 
rumor in the city that the British 
troops were coming to the rescue. 
So they all rushed out to cheer. Only 
they turned out to be Germans in- 

German sentries were on every 
street corner and she was to all in- 
tents and purposes a prisoner of war. 
It was no part of her intentions to 
stay cooped up in Brussels however. 
By dodging sentries, she reached a 
railroad station and hid in one of the 
freight cars. In that way she finally 
got to Ghent and from there the Bel- 
gian train men helped her to get to 

She managed to get herself across 
the Channel and found an engage- 
ment in London in a big musical 
comedy in which she made a great hit 
with a specialty dance. She went 
back to Paris and was one of the 
big hits of the Folies Bergere. 

After the war, she made her way, 
dancing all the while, to Australia, 
by way of Canada, arriving in 
Canada just in time to get into the 
Halifax disaster. 

She was dancing in New York 
when Sam Goldwyn saw her and 
persuaded her into pictures. The 
leading man of her first picture was 
Tom Moore who persuaded her into 

Not very long ago, Moore went to 
London to do a picture and the little 
bride went along. They visited his 
old home in Ireland and then came 
back home to America. The day they 
landed in New York Moore had an 
offer to do a picture there. 

But not for Renee — too cold. She 
came out to the Coast to get warm 
and it proved to be her great oppor- 

Until this Barker picture, her two 
biggest parts were in "The Strangers' 
Banquet" and Fox's "The Strongest." 

By Edward H. Pfeiffer 

I walk thru the darkness 
With silence, my friend. 

I am dreaming of lovers 
And love without end. 

A dark form is pressing 
A woman's bright face. 

A pang of sweet envy — 
I slacken my pace. 

I grope and draw nearer, 

And peer thru the night . 
Tis only a shadow 
Embracing a light!

Why Women Smile 

As they never did before 

Teeth are prettier today — Millions combat film 

Most pictures are now taken with 
a smile, showing pretty teeth. 

Look about you. Note how many 
smiles now show glistening teeth. 
That was not always so. 

Millions of people are now using a 
new teeth-cleaning method. Every day 
they are combating the dingy film on 
teeth. You will also do so when you 
make this test and see the quick results. 

Film is unsightly 

It is film that makes teeth dingy — 
that viscous film you feel. It clings to 
teeth, gets between 
the teeth and stays. 
If not frequently re- 
moved, it may form 
cloudy coats. It is 
also the basis of 

That film absorbs 
stains, so the teeth 
look discolored. It 
holds food substance 
which ferments and forms acid, 
holds the acid in contact with i!i_ 
teeth to cause decay. 

Millions of germs breed in it. They, 
with tartar, are the chief cause of 
pyorrhea. Thus most tooth troubles 
are now traced to film. 

Dental science has t^ng been seeking 
ways to fight that film. Two ways have 

now been found. Together they act to 
curdle the film and then remove it.

A new-type paste 

A new-type tooth paste has been created, to 
comply with all modern requirements. The 
name is Pepsodent. 

These two film combatants are embodied in 
it. Millions of people have adopted it. largely 
by dental advice. To the homes of fifty nations 
it is bringing a new dental era.

Pepsodent brings two other very important 
effects. It multiplies the 
starch digestant in the 
saliva. That is there to 
digest starch deposits 
which may otherwise 
cling and form acids. It 
multiplies the alkalinity 
of the saliva. That is 
there to neutralize mouth 
acids, the cause of tooth 

Thus every use of Pep- 
sodent gives manifold 
power to Nature's great 
tooth-protecting forces in the mouth.

acting is in part due to heredity, for 
the elder Schildkraut is also an actor 
of enduring worth. And the elder 
Schildkraut didn't wish the young 
Joseph to be an actor. He wanted 
him to be a musician and for years 
he studied music, the violin. . . . 
Once the parental objection was 
overcome, the path was easy of as- 
cent. To have played Richard the 
Second, Liliom and Ibsen's Peer 
Gynt at twenty-seven is to have 
slain most of the Goliaths. Perhaps, 
he said, if he had had to struggle 
harder, had to climb with greater 
difficulty, the rewards would have 
been sweeter and more precious. 

So much for an observation. A 
romantic recluse. An artist more 
than touched with the eccentricity of 
genius. A young man with a beauti- 
ful face and a ringing laughter. With 
a sense, not so much of humor as of 
the grotesque. Living in his book-

prerogative of helping to make good 
pictures out of their literary master- 

This business of making a book or 
j:>lay into a picture is frequently a 
difficult job, requiring much thought 
to translate words into visible action. 
After we writers for the screen have 
spent weeks and weeks trying to keep 
the spirit of the thing which we are 
adapting, it rather gets our goat to 
have authors cry out, without any 
distinction or discrimination, that all 
picture writers are butchers who get 
a savage joy out of mangling their 

Let them give us better books and 
better plays and we will see what 
happens to the screen. Or, better 
still, let them give up some of their 
valuable time and learn screen tech- 
nique, so that their self-admitted 
creative ability can express itself di- 
rectly in terms of the screen. If they 
are as non-commercial as they admit, 
let them stop writing mediocre plays 
and books and try to learn how to 
write really good pictures. Perhaps 
they can then convert the picture in- 
dustry into an art.

breaking the silence, "Remember the 
way Trilby used to sing, all off the 
key? How long ago that seems — 
two years, isn't it ?" 

And — "I wonder whatever became 
of Svengali and his wee bit fiddler," 
the Laird would burr, "that mon was 
almost crazy enough to be a genius, 
and he could sniff a sausage cooking 
three blocks away !" 

One day in a two-month-old news- 
paper they found the name Svengali, 
a Madame Svengali whose voice was 
the musical sensation of the hour. 
"'So," the gushing reporter had 
written, "might the Angel Israfel 
have caroled. The purity of her 
tones is almost unearthly in its sweet- 
ness, melting strong men to tears." 

"Wonder if our friend of the facial 
foliage could have married a great 
singer," Taffy chuckled. "When we 
get back next month we must go to 
hear her. I should like fine to see the 
Laird melted to tears !" 

The Cirque de Bashibazooks was 
crowded when the three friends took 
their places in a box on the first 
night of their return to Paris. Little 
Billie's elbow nudged Taffy's ribs ex- 
citedly as a familiar figure parted the 
curtains at the back of the stage and 
took his place at the piano. The frock 
coat was new, the unkempt beard was 
trimmed, and the long hands that 
swept the keys were somewhat 
cleaner than of yore but there was no 
mistaking Svengali. 

"Who do you suppose " the 

Laird began, but Little Billie had 
leaned suddenly forward, staring 
down at the woman's figure advanc- 
ing toward the footlights. She was 
gowned in a classic robe which fell 
about her majestic figure in statu- 
esque folds. The suggestion of a 
Greek marble was heightened by the 
whiteness of the face under the 
filleted bands of dark hair. She 
stopped in the full center of the stage, 
and Taffy felt a chill sensation at the 
roots of his hair. For one foot was 
advanced beneath the trailing robe, a 
hare white foot in a Greek sandal — 
the most beautiful foot in Paris 

"You see?" Little Billie breathed 
in his ear. His hands were crooked 
around the red velvet railing as tho 
to keep himself in his seat. 

"But it couldn't be," Taffy gasped 
stupidly, "Trilby couldn't sing a note 
and listen to that !" 

From the deeply curving lips that 
they remembered came a stranger 
voice, unearthly pure and clear, its 
fires the cold flames that are prisoned 
in ice floes in unsailed seas, soaring 
effortlessly to the very gates of 

Heaven, falling about their astounded 
cars in a bright rain. 

What she sang they could not re- 
member afterward, only the wonder 
of it, the strange awe. as tho they 
had listened to some celestial visitant. 
For a moment after she had disap- 
peared behind the sweeping velvet 
curtains the audience sat silent still 
held by the spell, then Svengali was 
bowing greasily to a mighty surge of 
applause, but Trilby — or she who 
sang with Trilby's lips did not reap- 

Without a word the three rose and 
left the box. Their knock on the 
dressing-room door was answered by 
Svengali, whose face seemed to re- 
treat watchfully into his beard at 
sight of them. 

They stammered incoherently, 
looking beyond his barricading arm 
at Trilby, their Trilby sitting unmov- 
ing in a deep chair with closed eyes. 
For the sake of old times — if they 
might speak to — to Madame Svengali 
and tell her how much they admired 
her singing 

Thus Taffy and the Laird, but 
Little Billie spoke not at all, only 
stared as one at some supernatural 
manifestation. The musician's eyes 
were hostile, the eyes of the cornered 
rat, but his voice was greasy with 
loving kindness. "The gentlemen 
were mistaken, Madame was no one 
they knew. A resemblance, perhaps ? 
But Madame was very tired, before 
she sang again she must rest — if they 
would excuse " 

Little Billie interrupted rudely. 
"D'you suppose I dont know Trilby? 
Dont point your finger at me, you 

fakir " he made a step forward 

as if to. push Svengali aside, "Trilby! 
Dont you remember Little Billie !" 

"Yes, tell the gentleman yourself, 
my dear," the musician said softly. 
He almost purred, little bright eyes 
never moving from the pale face that 
turned toward him at his words, "tell 
the gentleman that he is mistaken in 
thinking he knows you !" 

"You are mistaken — in thinking 
you know me," said the deeply curved 
lips obediently. There was not the 
slightest trace of recognition in the 
gaze she turned upon the three at the 
door, and Taffy began to back away, 
hot with apologies, but Little Billie 
advanced upon Svengali. jaw dan- 
gerous. "She's afraid of you or she 
wouldn't have said that! Let me in 
or I'll come in anyway -" 

"Dog !" panted his ancient enemv, 
and without warning was upon him, 
squealing, kicking, biting, winding

the long hands into Little Billie's hair. 
Taffy and the Laird dragged their 
companion away, leaving the little 
Italian panting and dancing; as they 
glanced hack they saw that the wom- 
an still lay in the long chair without 
motion, her eyes gazing away into 

"We must have made a mistake," 
Taffy burbled uneasily, knowing no 
mistake had been made, "couldn't 
have been she, Trilby couldn't 



Little Billie stared down at the 
empty stage with suffering eyes as a 
strange pianist appeared. Madame 
Svengali — his Trilby, that was all 
that mattered. He alone of the vast 
audience hardly noticed what hap- 
pened as the white-robed figure came 
down to the footlights and began to 
sing again, for he was back in the low 
room at the Passage des Abbesses 
and Trilby was smiling at him from 
the model throne 

It was laughter that aroused him 
from his dream, cruel, derisive. The 
audience was in an uproar, cat-calls 
and hisses sounded shamefully from 
the gallery and Taffy's fingers dug 
into the flesh of his shoulder while 
Taffy's voice sobbed in his ear, 
"God! She's forgotten how to sing! 
She's doing it the way she used to ! 
It's awful and look across there in 
the box yonder. Svengali ! What's 
the matter with him?" 

In the velvet chair opposite, the 
of the music-teacher lay 
sprawled in a strange posture, one 
hand clutching at his breast, but 
Little Billie did not glance at him. 
Hand on the rail he had vaulted 
down onto the stage in time to catch 
Trilby as she fell. 

The story was in the papers the 
next morning under the scare head 
"Death of Svengali from Heart Fail- 
ure in Opera Box Reveals Amaz- 
ing Hypnotic Feat." For two years, 
the story went on to say, the music- 
master had hypnotized his wife so 
that she was able to sing correctly, 
but the moment his power was with- 
drawn only deafening discords came 
from the throat that had enchanted 
the world. Dazed and bewildered by 
the shock of yesterday's fiasco, the 
report went on to say, Madame 
Svengali was seriously ill and doctors 
despaired of her life. 

Little Billie refused to believe the 
doctors. He knelt for hours by the 
bed where Trilby lay and tried to call 
her back from the far places where 
her soul wandered with all the power 
of his love. Sometimes the heavy 
lids unclosed and she smiled vaguely 
at them, but it was only at the very 
last that she spoke. "I should so love 
to — have been happy and had — a 
home — and a little baby. But you 
mustn't spoil — his career — Little

Miss de Lacey admits that his 
name is not a Philippe. She says that 
his first name as a baby was An- 
dreas: further than that she refuses 
to reveal. With engaging frankness 
.she states her reason. She fears that 
some relative might hear of him and 
claim him. So far as she knows, he 
has no relatives left ; but why take 
chances ? Why indeed ! 

Little Philippe has so many moth- 
ers — yet no mother. In every play 
lie has another pretend mother. For 
the purposes of identification, he 
calls them hi-- "screen mammas" 
while Miss De Lacey he calls his 
"regular mamma."

How the Motion Picture H;i^ 
Influenced Young Peru 

ntinued from page 22) 

As a result, the Peruvian woman 
has now not onlj changed her man- 
ner of dressing and is reforming her 
figure by a lesser indulgence in 
sweets, but she goes in for sporl a'nd 
Bport clothes. "Esport" they call it 
(low n there. 

The languorous-eyed, black-gowned 
Peruvian woman lias emerged from 
behind the carved gratings of her 
balcony from which, ever since the 
days of the "conquistadores," she 
viewed the world and is now to be 
seen in suitable sport dross, or walk- 
ing costume on the golf links or city 

With this change of dress has 
come a freedom of action, that was 
undreamed oi a generation ago. In 
the films perfectly nice girls talk to 

men alone. That was an eye-opener 
for the Peruvian girl and her chap- 
eron. It had been the custom oi the 
country for a young girl never to be 
allowed to remain in a room alone 
with a man. Also "ladies" are shown 
in American dims as working. Often 
they do their own housework, or 
earn their own living. This is some- 
thing that no Peruvian lady could 
do. A Peruvian girl, no matter how 
she was. until very recently 
never dreamed it was possible that 
die could support herself, could go 
out and work. It simply wasn't 
done. These antiquated standards 
.".re rapidly changing. 

Another very important effect of 
the moving picture in Peru, is bring- 
ing home to the male population the 
truths of fairness, honesty and play- 
ing the game. 

No Peruvian school teaches ath- 
letic-. There is no such thing as 
interschool games. Hygiene and 
physical fitness as we know them are 
unheard of. Put when a Peruvian 
hoy sees a Douglas Fairbanks film. 
in which physical fitness and fair 
play are the usual themes, it gives 
him something to think about. The 
idea dawns, that standing on the 
>treet corners or in front of cafes 
eyeing the senoritas as they pass, or 
whispering things in their ears, or 
taking dope, or imitating the pasos 
61 the popular matador, is perhaps 
not the only ideal of a well-spent 

Sportsmanship is not a South 
American virtue, that is. as we know 
it from the Anglo-Saxon point of 
view. Honesty and good sportsman- 
ship are qualities which the human 
animal is not necessarily endowed 
with, hut they are qualities which

education lias made almost second 

Now to be educated always sounds 
like a tedious process, especially so 
in the tropics where one is less likely 
to be energetic and eager for uplift. 
But thru the sugar-coated medium of 
an exciting movie story these same 
ideals are taking effect. 

The result is evidenced on all sides. 
And not only in Lima but in small 
Indian towns. In the little fishing 
village of Ancon where the cinema 
is shown in a mud hut with wooden 
benches for seats, I have seen the 
audience, which consists of Cholos 
(the Peruvian Indian), get up and 
cheer the bravery of "El Leon de 
Sierra" (The lion of the mountains) 
or the Samson-like feats of Elmo 
Lincoln or Ruth Roland's gallant es- 
capes in "La Hija del Sol." The 
audiences in the smaller towns 
are for the most part illiterate, and 
an elected reader translates the cap- 
tions. So realistic is the story to 
these primitive people that they will 
sometimes throw things at the villain 
and always shout and cheer when 
the heroine escapes. 

Over the summit of the Andes far 
down the other side in the tropical 
Peruvian colony I saw a Mrs. Ver- 
non Castle film. The audience con- 
sisted entirely of Indians. She was 
not popular, as primitive people want 
red-blooded action. This accounts 
for the popularity of the serial 
thriller, featuring such stars as Pearl 
White or Ruth Roland. 

Charlie Chaplin's universality is 
manifest when a Hill man untouched 
by civilization, who has never been 
away from his village and who has 
probably never seen a derby hat and 
doesn't know that a small man in 
large-sized clothes is traditionally 
funny, can yet meet a European or 
North American on the common 
ground of laughter.

Dull Hair 

Noted actresses all abhor dull 
hair — they can't afford to have it. 
They have no more choice in the 
color of their hair than you have. 
Their hair is more beautiful, be- 
cause their profession — their 
very environment — soon teaches 
them how to make the best of 
what nature has given them. 

Practically every woman has rea- 
sonably good hair — satisfactory in 
quantity, texture and color. So-called 
dull hair is the result of improper care. 
Ordinary shampooing is not enough ; 
just washing cannot sufficiently im- 
prove dull, drab hair. Only a sham- 
poo that adds "that little something" 
dull hair lacks can really improve it. 

Whether your hair is light, medium 
or dark, it is only necessary to supply 
this elusive little something to make it 
beautiful. This can be done. If your 
hair lacks lustre — if it is not quite as 
rich in tone as you would like to have 
it — you can easily give it that little 
something it lacks. No ordinary 
shampoo will do this, for ordinary 
shampoos do- nothing but clean the 
hair. Golden Glint Shampoo is NOT 

an ordinary shampoo. It does more than 
merely clean. It adds that little something 
which distinguishes really pretty hair from 
that which is dull and ordinary. 

Have a Golden Glint Shampoo today and 
give your hair this special treatment which 
is all it needs to make it as beautiful as 
you desire it. 25 cents a package at toilet 
counters or postpaid direct. J. W. Kobi

She Found A Better Way To 
Reduce Her Fat 

She did not have to go to the 
trouble of diet, exercise or unpleas- 
ant greases and salves. She found a 
better way, which aids the digestive 
organs to turn food into muscle, bone 
and sinew instead of fat. 

She used Marmola Prescription 
Tablets, which are made from the 
famous Marmola prescription. They 
aid the digestive system to obtain the 
full nutriment of food. They will allow 
you to eat many kinds of food without 
the necessity of dieting or exercising. 

Thousands have found that the 
Marmola Prescription Tablets give 
complete relief from obesity. And 
when the accumulation of fat is 
checked, reduction to normal, healthy 
weight soon follows. 

All good drug stores the world over sell 
Marmola Prescription Tablets at one dollar

direct and they will be sent in plain wrap- 
per, postpaid.

An Easy Way to 

Remove Dandruff 

If you want plenty of thick, beautiful, 
glossy, silky hair, do by all means get rid 
of dandruff, for it will starve your hair 
and ruin it if you don't. 

The best way to get rid of dandruff is to 
dissolve it. To do this, just apply a little 
Liquid Arvon at night before retiring; use 
enough to moisten the scalp, and rub it in 
gently with the finger tips. 

By morning, most, if not all, of your 
dandruff will be gone, and three or four 
more applications should completely remove 
every sign and trace of it. 

You will find, too, that all itching of the 
scalp will stop, and your hair will look and 
feel a hundred times better. You can get 
Liquid Arvon at any drug store. A four- 
ounce bottle is usually all that is needed.

Nothing Is More Beautiful Than the 
Natural Wave of Lustrous Hair 

You have often heard the remark at some 
society function: "What a beautiful woman 
that is!" And nine times out of ten she isn't 
beautiful, her attraction being almost wholly 
due to natural hair health, texture and bril-

develops the life, luster and natural wave. It 
makes hair clean, bright and luxuriant. It 
removes every particle of dirt, dust and dandruff, 
cleanses and improves the scalp and leaves the 
hair a mass ot fluffy softness that will render 
oven ordinary hair attractive. After its use 
the hair dries quickly and evenly and is never 
streaky; use it in bard or soft water — then 
rinse and note the magical difference.

It will surprise you to find that such an effi-

three cents a shampoo. Since it entered the

Commodore J. Stuart Blackton is 
making preparations for the first of 
the Blackton Productions which will 
he released by Vitagraph. It is un-

office values. 

Charles Dillingham has returned 
from London, Paris, Vienna and 
Budapest with a bundle of new plays 
and novelties for his theaters — the 
best that the market afforded in Eng- 
land and on the Continent. 

"Before buying any foreign play, 
I obtained the famous 'Italian Mari- 
onette Players,' " said Mr. Dilling- 
ham. "These marionettes are a form 
of art which allows of great scope and 
assures the interpretation of the au- 
thor's intentions, only they are not so 
wooden as many of the unionized 
American actors. They are the one 
great novelty of the London season," 
he insisted. "This is a troupe of 
more than five hundred marionettes, 
with a repertoire of some twenty-five 
operas, innumerable burlesques, 
ballets and vaudeville acts. The 
musical settings are by Rossini, 
Csesar Cui, Donizetti, Mazzenet and 
Ottarine Respighi. The Teatro del 
Piccoli is an expressive of the soul of 
Italian art as is the Russian ballet of 
the soul of eastern Europe." 

Sam Wood is seeking a beautiful 
girl, professional or amateur, to play 
the leading role in a new picture 
which he has already started at the 
Paramount Long Island Studio. It's 
getting to be a serious matter with 
him, for he has been searching for 
weeks without being able to find the 
type he wants. He felt he couldn't 
delay production any longer and has 
begun work without her. The role is 
that of Diana Kayne, in a screen 
version of Arthur Train's story, "His 
Children's Children." Two additions 
were made last week to the cast. 
They are Mary Eaton of the Follies 
and Hale Hamilton, star of both 
stage and screen. Mary Eaton will 
be starred in the fall by Flo Ziegfeld.

South Amboy, X. J., last Sunday. 
( )ne of the desperadoes escaped and 

the other is thoughl to have lost hi >

Embarrassing Hair All Gone 
In A Few Minutes 

AMAZINGLY simple, easy, quick, pleasant and sure 

£\ —this new way to get rid of embarrassing liair, 

•*■ *-either under the arms or elsewhere, yet absolute!} 

safe and harmless- -sure death to unsightly hair, but 

doesn't hurt the skin a particle. 

First you apply a bit of powder, then a bit of 
lotion — in a few minutes all trace of hair will be gone. 
Has never failed. 

A new discovery — entirely different from other 
methods. Kilrute is a combination treatment — a pow- 
der that instantly dissolves and removes the external 
part of the hair — plus a lotion that goes below the sur- 
face and gradually devitalizes the hair glands (en- 
docrine glands) thus preventing new growth. It does 
this by stopping the secretions which supply nourish- 
ment to the hair — literally starves the hair root to 
death. Wherever this lotion is applied, its action on 
these glands bring about precisely the same condition 
(starvation of the hair root that is the cause of so 
much baldness among men). 

A single application of the Kilrute Powder is gen- 
erally all that is needed to remove all outward or ex- 
ternal traces of hair. Then a few applications of the 
Kilrute Lotion will gradually devitalize the glands 
which feed the hair, thus discouraging future growth. 

To Prove It To You 

The makers of Kilrute guarantee absolute 
satisfaction. To prove results, a complete 

ombination treatment with full directions 
.pill be sent on approval. Send no money- 
simply fill out and mail the coupon. The T 
> of the complete treatment is $5.00.

house as a group of incompetents. 
They notice her departure, but never 
think of following her. 

Meanwhile there is a melodra- 
matic flair when an escaped convict 
is determined to exact vengeance 
against the judge for sending him up 
the river — and the girl aids him to 
escape. The introductory scenes are 
by far the best — particularly the one 
featuring the prison delivery. But 
the picture becomes tiresome and 
dull and falters toward its conclu- 
sion. A discrepancy creeps out 
when the immaculate hero journeys 
down to Cherry Street attired in 
evening clothes and a top hat. As if 
he were slumming! 

The acting of the three cronies is 
entrusted to Claude Gillingwater, 
William H. Crane and Alec Francis. 
All give mellow performances with 
the first mentioned surpassing the 
others. Eleanor Boardman's hero- 
ine is easy upon the eyes but ber in- 
terpretation merely skims the sur- 
face. Careful editing would improve 
the picture, which despite its short- 
comings contains a few appealing 

ANY picture carrying as its theme 
the evils of dope is not ex- 
pected to prove very enjoyable 
entertainment. But because it pre- 
sents a terrific indictment of the 
drug habit and is offered as a sin- 
cere attempt to diminish the scope of 
this terrible evil, "Human Wreck- 
age" (Film Booking Offices) will 
earn encomiums, regardless of the 
fact that many will consider it made 
for commercial purposes. It tells a 
story recognizably real, touching the 
high places as well as the low places 
in the social scale, thus revealing 
that no one is immune from the 
deadly influence of narcotics. 

The continuity doesn't always be- 
have. There are times when lesser 
characters are neglected entirely to 
give emphasis to the major plot — 
which concerns a powerful attorney 
becoming addicted to morphine and 
causing his wife untold anguish, un- 
til she is unable to cope with the vice 
and is about to become an addict 
herself, when her husband, realizing 
the terrible consequences, shakes off 
the grip of the drug. 

Mrs. Wallace Reid has doubtless 
employed her own personal experi- 
ences with other persons afflicted 
with the craving for narcotics — and 
the story which involves her is much 
more genuine than the by-plots con- 
cerning characters from a lower sta- 
tion in the social scheme. Yet these

{Continued from page 56) 

Trina began to cry, remembering 
ber cold-blooded selfishness and what 
he had done to ber at the same time. 
She piled the gold back into its bag 
and locked the trunk. The key she 
wore in a tiny chamois bag around 
her neck. 

At the kindergarten the next day 
the children were decorating for their 
Christmas celebration. It was four 
o'clock and the early winter dusk had 
set in. Everything was ready but the 
Moor. The children went home anil 
left Trina to do the scrubbing. As 
she sloshed around in the dirty water, 
she thought of her gold at home, her 
bright, clean, shining, gold. She 
wrung the mop dry for the last time 
and was terrified to see McTeague 
enter the room. He had been drink- 

"Wha-what do you want?" she 

"Your five thousand." 

"I haven't got it. Uncle Oelber- 
man still has it." 

"You lie. I've been to him." 

"I'll give you half " 

"No. Every damn cent of it." 

Trina did not reply. She slipped 
past him and managed to lock him in 
the room. He broke the lock without 
any difficulty and followed her to the 
cloak room. He took her by the 
throat and pressed his broad flat 
thumb into its soft throbbing white- 
ness. She made a funny litle gur- 
gling sound and started to struggle. 
Presently he staggered out of the 
dark cloak room and shut the door 
gently after him. 

At home he took Trina's little key 
and unlocked the trunk. He cursed 
the heavy load. He cursed the avarice 
that had demanded gold instead of 
bills, but he stuffed the canvas bag 
in the top of his trousers and went 
away. In the morning he was back 
at the Big Dipper Mine where he had 
worked as a boy. 

In the morning the children coming 
to school in little chattering groups 
walked happily toward the cloak 
room. A black cat was sniffing at the 
door, curling its tail. They opened 
the door, and ran back screaming. 
They could see a little white hand 
with only two fingers on it, out- 
stretched in its last mute and futile 

One night McTeague awakened 
with a fear he could not define. "I 
dont see nothing," he muttered, "I 
cant hear nothing, but I feel some- 
thing. . . ." He lay down again 
but he could not sleep. The Mc- 
Teagues of the world can always 
sleep and the fact that he couldn't, 
filled him with a grim foreboding.

of Moonlit Eyes

he fell in with ;i man named Criblx 
They formed a pai tncrship and went 
prospecting in Death Valley for gold. 
Miraculously they found it and 
staked their claim. Their mine they 
called "The I ast ( "hance." A new 
life began for Mel eagiie. 

A notice was posted in the desert 
for ilic arrest of McTeague wanted 
for murder, offering one thousand 
dollars reward. Marcus Schouler, as 
malign as fate, one day read the 
poster. He offered himself to the 
sheriff as a means of identifying Mc- 
Teague. He further adorned Ins tale 
by saying that the five thousand Mc- 
Teague carried was stolen from him. 
The sheriff and his posse, including 
Marcus, set mil over the desert. 

At midnight McTeague woke again 
suddenly, lie fired his Winchester 
in the air. "Aw, show yourself, will 
vim ?" he cried inexplicably. Cribbens 
sat up in surprise. McTeague was 
wiping the sweat from his white face. 
eery by starlight. "What in hell's 
the matter with your" Cribbens 
wanted to know. At dawn Mc- 
Teague was gone and the posse 
arrived. But they refused to go in- 
to the desert — only Marcus, who 
dreamed of the gold, followed. 

On the desert McTeague's mule 
dragged his feet wearily thru the hot 
sand. Foolishly McTeague had 
emptied his canteen at one draught. 
More foolishly still he had tied his 
bag of gold to the mule's hack and the 
mule had eaten some loeo weed. Mc- 
Teague lay down beside the beast and 
went to sleep. He was awakened by 
the sinister "Hands Up," of Marcus. 
Indifferently, McTeague complied. 

"Water," said Marcus weakly. 

"Gone," replied McTeague. 

"The money," whispered Marcus, 
his tongue hanging out like a dog 

"On the mule." McTeague an- 
swered, as tho it didn't matter to him 
what became of it. 

Marcus jumped toward the mule, 
which ran skittishly away. Both men 
started after it and Marcus drew his 
gun and shot it. As the animal fell, 
the gold pieces slid out of the hag in 
amazing brightness. McTeague 
lunged toward Marcus and in a triee 
Marcus had clamped the handcuffs 
to him. 

Now they begin to argue about 
the possession of the gold. They for-

The Celluloid Critic 

{Continued from page 90) 

people in their efforts to peddle the 
stuff and the consequences of their 
acts show that they are not far over- 
drawn. There are five or six deaths 
— some of which are violent — which 
make the majority of scenes harrow- 
ing indeed. But one is not looking 
at sweetness and light in an expose 
of the drug evil. Many will profit 
by the picture and naturally will 
watch their steps. The peddlers and 
addicts will on the other hand not 
be attracted to it, for its evils are too 
sharply emphasized. 

A word for James Kirkwood. As 
the attorney he gives a highly effec- 
tive study of human suffering when 
he becomes an addict. And George 
Hackathorne as a character in the 
clutches of "coke" brings a sharp 
touch of realism to the role. Mrs. 
Wallace Reid is sincere and earnest 
in her portrayal of the wife. Hav- 
ing dedicated her life to save others 
from this terrible affliction, she suc- 
ceeds in bringing value to the picture. 

melodrama, "The Woman with 
Four Faces," (Paramount) car- 
ries a teaser title which will attract 
curiosity. The curious, however, 
once they are in their seats, will sec 
a likely story which has been com- 
petently executed by Herbert Bre- 
non, the director, even, tho the 
author (he should have known bet- 
ter) has allowed an array of incon- 
sistent episodes to mar his work. 

Imagine a quartette of crooks put- 
ting the papers in a safe instead of 
destroying them ; imagine a district 
attorney using a personable girl, 
gifted at disguise and masquerade 
(hence the title), to gather the evi- 
dence ; imagine this same prosecutor 
employing an airplane to lift a con- 
vict from a prison yard so that he 
might crack the safe in which the 
papers are hidden. The improbabil- 
ities may furnish novelty, but they 
also give it a pictury character. Di- 
rected with speed and acted with an 
assortment of expressions by Betty 
Compson, who is at her best in crook 


XOTHER Paramount, "The 
Law of the Lawless," is an old 
friend in a new disguise. The 
girl who sells herself on the auction 
block to wipe out her father's debts 
has been treated upon the screen for 
years. Here it serves in bringing 
out a gypsy background, the locale 
being somewhere along the lower 
Danube. But all the picturesque

Billie's career. Trilby! You must—

"Trilby!" Little Billie groaned, 
"Oh, my dear, dont run away " 

A little later she whispered 
Svengali's name. "He was— kind to 
me. We were really married 

too " with a piteous Hash of 

pride, "so you can put — Madame on

"Trilby," begged Little Billie,

in springtime with the llower carts, 
and the cafes and theaters at night. 
We'll sit in the gallery at the ( )pera

we'll buy sausages and daffodils and

Trilby laughed a ghost of her old 
gay laughter, "and I'll — sing-

Your voice can be 
improved 100 /C 

A few very fortunate persons— like the late 
Caruso— are born with the ability to sing 
well. But even Caruso had to develop his 
Hyo-Glossus muscle before his voice was 
perfect. You can develop a beautiful singing 
or speaking voice if your Hyo-Glossus m 
is strengthened by correct training. Pro- 
fessor I-'euchtingtr, A. M— famous in the 
music centers of Europe for his success in 
training famous Opera Singers— discovered 
the secret of the Hyo-Glossus muscle. He 
devoted years of his life to scientific research 
and finally perfected a system of voice train- 
ing that will develop your Hyo-Glossus 
muscle by simple, silent exercises right in 
your own home. The Perfect Voice Institute 
guarantees that Professor Feuchtinger's 
method will improve your voice ! 
are to be you' own judge — if your voice is 
not improved 100< in your own opinion, we 
will refund your money.

Hundreds of famous singers bare studied with 
Professor Feuchtinirer. Over 10.000 happy pupils 
have received the benefits of his wonderful trcin- 
ing. You do not know the possibilities of your 
voice. If you want to sing— but lack the proper 
training because you have not the time nor m< »r- 
to study— here is your chance. You can now train 
your voice at a very small cost io the privacy of 
your own home. 

If you want to improve your speaking voice— if 
you stammer or stutter— Professor Feuchtingsr 
will help you.

Life, once I loved you, when I was young, 

Nodded assent when your praises were 


Trustingly yielded myself to your sway, 

Followed your precepts day after day. 

Now, I no longer am under your spell. 
As i grow older I know you too well. 

Know you will cheat me whenever you 

Break me or make me, just as you plan. 

Life, I shall laugh at you when I am old. 
Perhaps you will wonder what makes me 
so bold — 
And I shall answer you with my last 

Mine is the triumph, tho victory means

Stop Falling Hair 

And Grow New Hair 
Or Money Refunded 

The tlay of experiment in hair treatment 
has passed. Science has discovered new 
principles — a method absolutely and un- 
qualifiedly guaranteed in zvriting, to stop 
falling hair, and to grow new hair in 90 
days or money refunded. 

This offers you a test which it is folly 
not to make. For it will cost you nothing 
it it fails. 

What it is 

It is called the Van Kss Liquid Scalp 
Massage. It penetrates active germ com- 
bating elements directly down to the hair 
roots, and combats the infected scalp oil 
(Sebum) to which modern science traces 
of all hair troubles. 

Results are amazing, often almost in- 
credible. And in even- instance you must 
be satisfied, or money refunded. 

If your hair lacks lustre and life, if it is 
thin and falling, by all means try this new 
way. Your trouble is probably a simple 
infection, usually quite easy to overcome. 
Actual tests prove the Van Ess method 
effective in 91 cases in every 100. 

Obtain today a full 90-day treatment of 
\ an Ess Liquid Scalp Massage at an) 
partment or drug .store. With it will come 
a guarantee in ivriting as your protection 
if it fails. Results will prove a revelation.

This Beautiful Woman *Y0U 

It is natural to be beautiful. Every woman is by 

nature beautiful. Only when artificial influencesinterfere 

does the human body, Nature's most beautiful product, 

lose its grace, slenderness, or symmetry. The delicious 

foods of our modern civilization are so tempting that 

one eats too much. Machinery does so much of our 

work that we exercise too little. The result of this of 

course, is disfiguring fat— yet underneath every stout 

fleshy figure lies the lovely slender figure that is 

yours — the beautiful woman that is you. 


Dr. R. Lincoln Graham, famous stomach 
specialist of New York, altera lifetimeof re- 
search at home and abroad has solved the 
problem of counter-acting the fattening 
effect of modern methods of living. After 
countless experiments he finally has per- 
fected his prescription known as Neut- 
roids, which neutralizes sugars.and star- 
ches taken into the stomach and prevents 
them from form ing into fat. His marvelous 
prescription, Neutroids, has been pre- 
scribed for more than two years to the 
thousands of stout women who have called 
complete success. Most important of all, 
there is not the slightestelement of danger 
in taking Neutroids treatment for super- 
fluous flesh. Neutroids contain no thyroid 
extract or other dangerous or habit form 
ingdrugs— yet they are guaranteed by Dr. 
Graham to effect satisfactory reduction.

"Beauty That tyres 

Often you meet a woman with vivid beauty that 
exerts an irresistible charm. It doesn't depend upon 
regularity of features, or the color of eyes and hair. 
A smooth, fresh, flawless skin — a complexion glow- 
ing with the radiance of health and free from im- 
perfections — this is the secret of alluring attraction. 

Cleopatra had it, and her name will always be the 
symbol of all-conquering beauty. She perfected this 
beauty, and kept it in this perfection in a simple, 
natural way which history has handed down for 
modern women. 

How She Did It 

By thorough, gentle, daily cleansing which kept 
the texture of her skin firm, fine-grained and smooth. 
Dirt, oil and perspiration were never allowed to col- 
lect, to enlarge and irritate the tiny skin pores. The 
lavish use of cosmetics practiced by all ancient wo- 
men did her no harm, because every day she carefully 
washed them away. 

Her secret — palm and olive oils, valued as both 
cleansers and cosmetics in the days of ancient Egypt. 
The crude combination which served the great queen 
so well was the inspiration for our modern Palmolive. 

Bedtime Is Best 

Your daily cleansing is best done at night, 


so your complexion may be revived and refreshed 
during sleep. The remains of rouge and powder, the 
accumulations of dirt and natural skin oil, the traces 
of cold cream should always be removed. 

So, just before retiring, wash your face in the 
smooth, mild Palmolive lather. Massage it gently 
into the skin. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft 

In the morning refresh yourself with a dash of 
cold water and then let your mirror tell the story. 
Charming freshness and natural roses will smile 
back at you. 

Once Costly Luxuries 

When Cleopatra kept her loveliness fresh and 
radiant by using Palm and Olive oils, they were ex- 
pensive. Today these rare and costly oils are offered 
in a perfected blend at modest cost. Palmolive fac- 
tories work day and night. Palm and olive oils are 
imported from overseas in vast quantities. 

The result is soap for which users would willingly 
pay 25c, but which costs only 10c, the price 
of ordinary soap. The firm, fragrant, 
green cake, the natural 
color of the oils, is for 
sale the world over. ^^0B

Z\[ature's Qreen 

Palmolive takes its color from the 
palm and olive oil blend which is 
responsible for its mildness. It is 
as much nature's own color as the 
green of grass and leaves. 

Remember this when you are en- 
joying its wonderful cleansing 
-lualities and marveling at its 
mildness. Palmolive is a modern, 
scientific blend of the most per- 
fect soap ingredients that the 
world has been able to discover 
in 3,000 years. 

Palm and olive oils 
— nothing else — give 
nature's green color 
to Palmolive Soap. 

Reflecting Beauty Seer 

of the Pa 

Women of ancient Egypt knew that cleanli- 
ness was the first aid to beauty. But they 
knew, too, that cleansing methods must be 
mild, gentle. 

Famous Egyptian beauties solved the problem 
by using palm and olive oils. The same rare, 
natural oils are blended in Palmolive Soap 

How it acts 

This gentle, thorough cleanser never leaves 
skin dry and rough. 

The smooth, creamy lather actually soothes 
as it cleanses. Yet it removes every trace of 
dirt, perspiration, and surplus oil accumulated 
in the tiny pore openings. 

Your skin is kept rree of imperfections which 
result from pore-clogging. It remains fresh, 
soft, radiantly clear. 

How to use it 

Never sleep without cleansing the skin. 


Wash with this mildest soap at bed- time- 
massaging the creamy lather well in. 
Then rinse very thoroughly. Dry the skin 
well, and — if necessary — apply cold cream. 

Mornings — just an invigorating rinse in cold 
water to bring the fine, natural color to your 

Supreme quality — low price 

This scientific combination is within the 
reach of all- at the price of ordinary soap. 
PalmoliveSoap is produced in suchenormous 
quantities that the price is brought extremely 
low. Thus 25c quality costs but 10c. 

Everyone can afford this thorough, gentle 
cleanser— for every toilet purpose, hands, 
face, and the whole body. 

Supply yourself today withacake ofPalmolive 
Soap. Once you experience the effects of its 
profuse, creamy, smooth lather no other soap 
will satisfy.

Protect Yourself Against These 
Sudden Embarrassments ! 

A chance meeting on the street, an unex- 
pected invitation, a cup of coffer suddenly 
overturned, an introduction to ionic person 

of note these are the occasions that demand 

complete self-possession, that demand calm- 
ness and ease. Those who become flustered 
and embarrassed under circumstances like 
these, instantly betray the fact that they are 
not accustomed to good society. But those 
who retain a calm dignity, who know exactly 
what to do and say, impress others with their 

fine breeding and protect themselves from 


DO YOU know the comfort of being 
always at ease- of being always sure 
of yourself, calm, dignified, self- 
possessed ! 

li is the most wonderful feeling in the 
world. You don't have to worry about 
making blunders. You don't have to won- 
der what people are thinking of you. You 
don't have to wish that you hadn't done a 
certain thing, or said a certain thing. 

The next time you are at a dinner or a 
party, notice the people around you. See 
if you can't pick out at once the pi 
who are well-bred, who are confident of 
themselves, who do and say the right thing 
and know it. You will always find that 
these people are the best "mixers." that 
people like to he with them, that they are 
popular, well-liked. 

And then notice the people who are not 
sure of themselves. Notice that they stam- 
mer and hesitate when strangers -peak to 
them; that they are hesitant and uncom- 
fortable at the table, that they seem embar- 
rassed and ill at ease. These people actu- 
ally make you feel ill at ease. They are 
never popular; they always seem to be 
out of place; they rarely have a good time. 

Some of the 

Blunders People 


At a certain thea- 
tre, recently, a man 
made himself con- 
spicuous, through a 
blunder that could 
easily have been 
avoided. He entered 
a lower box with 
two women — prob- 
ably his mother and 
sister. Without think- 
ing, he seated him- 
self on the chair that 
one of the women 
should have occupied. 

The whole secret 
of being always at 
ease is to be able to 
do and say what is 
absolutely correct 
without stopping to 
think about it. One 
should be able to do 
the right thing as 
easily as one says 
"good morning." 

\\ ould you have 
known what seat to 
take in the box ? Do 
you know who pre- 
cedes when entering 
a theatre -the man 
or the woman? Do

YOU whose lives are spent in one 
locality may have a dim idea of 
the thousands of other communities 
keenly enjoying Paramount Pictures 
at the same moment. 

You who travel all over the United 
States have seen for yourselves that 
Paramount is always mysteriously there 
ahead of you ! 

But world-travelers can add still 
another chapter to 
the story ! 

They know that 



Paramount's fame is blazoned through 
every continent. It is no surprise to 
them to see the familiar trademark 
on theatres in London, Paris, Algiers, 
Japan, or Australia. 

In some far eastern communities 
the name Paramount (perhaps the 
only English term they know), is a 
magic word because it means to 
them just what it means to you — 
"to-night's the 
night for a great 
show ! "

1 CanTeadxTfou to Dance like This* 


"And you can study urider my personal 
direction right in your own home." 

FEW PEOPLE living outside of 
New York, Chicago, or the great 
European capitals have the op- 
portunity to study dancing with any 
of the really great masters. And the 
private, personal instructions of 
even average teachers range upward 
from $10 an hour. 

But now, the famous Sergei MarinoS 
has worked out a system of home 
instruction. You can learn classic 
dancing in all its forms — interpretive, 
Russian, ballet, aesthetic, Greek — at 
a mere fraction of the cost of lessons 
in the studio. 

A Fascinating Way to Learn 

It is so easy and so delightful. Just 
put the record on the phonograph, 
slip into the dainty little dancing 
costume (furnished free with the 
Course) and you are ready to start. 
Now comes the voice of MarinoS 
himself instructing you, telling you 
what to do, while the spirited rhythm 
of the music inspires grace and confi- 
dence in you. And guided by the 
charts, the photographs of MarinoS 
and his students and the easy text, you 
master the technique of the dance. 

Your progress is rapid and soon you 
develop confidence so that you are 
eager to dance before an audience. 


Dancing Costume, Phonograph 
Records, Complete Studio Outfit 

A dainty costume designed so as to permit 
free use of the limbs, ballet slippers, every- 
thing you need to help you with your les* 
sons comes FREE with the course. Simple 
charts and beautiful photographs illustrate 
every lesson while phonograph records 
and simply worded text teach the essen- 
tial points of technique. You can learn to 
dance, as you have always longed to dance, 
and your lessons will be pleasant and easy. 

Charm and Grace 

The natural beauty of the body is 
developed, an exquisite grace and 
flexibility cultivated by correct train- 
ing in classic dancing. For better 
health — for greater beauty— for poise— 
for slenderness — dance ! Dancing is 
the pleasantest form of exercise. 

As a means of developing grace in 
children, dancing is unsurpassed. 
And with my method, mother and 
daughter can grow graceful together. 

And Fortune — and Glory 

The popularity of classic dancing 
grows greater every day. It has won 
its place in American life. 

For the theatre — vaudeville — the 
movies — civic and college pageants — 
for private social aSairs — everywhere 

the dancer is in demand. Startling 
salaries are paid. And those who can 
dance for charitable entertainments or 
for the pleasure of their friends 
quickly become social favorites. In 
addition, one is so much more desira- 
ble as a partner in ball room dances 
when she has developed a sense of 
rhythm, and cultivated suppleness 
through classic dancing.

The Most Darinf* Book 
Ever Written ! 

Elinor Glyn, famous author of "Three Weeks," has written an 
amazing book that should be read by every man and woman 
— married or single. "The Philosophy of Love" is not a novel 
— it is a penetrating searchlight fearlessly turned on the most 
intimate relations of men and women. Read below how you can 
get this thrilling book at our risk— without advancing a penny. 

*\X7"ILL you marry the 
» » man you love, or will 
you take the one you can 

If a husband stops loving 
his wife, or becomes infatu- 
ated with another woman, 
who is to blame — the hus- 
band, the wife, or the 
"other woman? " 

Will you win the girl you 
want, or will Fate select 
your Mate? 

Should a bride tell her husband 
what happened at seventeen? 

Will you be able to hold the love 
of the one you cherish — or will your 
marriage end in divorce? 

Do you know how to make people 
like you? 

IF you can answer the above ques- 
tions — if you know all there is 
to know about winning a woman's 
heart or holding a man's affections 
— you don't need "The Philosophy 
of Love." But if you are in doubt — 
if you don't know just how to 
handle your husband, or satisfy 
your wife, or win the devotion of 
the one you care for — then you 
must get this wonderful book. You 
can't afford to take chances with 
your happiness. 

The Oracle of Love" 

What Every Man and 
Woman Should Know 

— how to win the man 

you love. 
— how to win the girl you 

— how to hold your hus- 
band's love. 
— how to make people 

admire you. 
— why men "step out" 

and leave their wives 

— why many marriages 

end in despair. 
— how to hold a woman's 

— how to keep a husband 

home nights. 
— why most women don't 

know how to make love. 
— things that turn men 

against you. 
— how to make marriage 

a perpetual honey- 
— the 'danger year" of 

married life. 

— how to ignite love — 

how to keep it flaming 
— how to rekindle it if 

burnt out. 
— how to cope with the 

"hunting instinct" in 

— how to attract people 

you like. 
— why some men and 

women are always lov- 
able, regardless of age. 
— how to make love keep 

you young. 
— must all men be either 

"dubs" or devils? 
— how to increase your 

desirability in a man's 

— how to tell if someone 

really loves you. 
— things that make a 

woman "cheap" or 

— how to make people 

do the things you want 

them to. 

What Do YOU 
Know About Love? 

DO you know how to win the 
one you love? Do you 
know why husbands, with de- 
voted, virtuous wives, often be- 
come secret slaves to creatures 
of another "world " — and how 
to prevent it? Why do some 
men antagonize women, finding 
themselves beating against a 
stone wall in affairs of love? 
When is it dangerous to disre- 
gard convention? Do you know how to 
curb a headstrong man, or are you the 
victim of men's whims? Do you know how 
to retain a man's affection always? How 
to attract men? Do you know the things 
that most irritate a man? Or disgust a 
woman? Can you tell when a man really 
loves you — or must you take his word for 
it? Do you know what you MUST NOT 
DO unless you want to be a "wall flower" 
or an "old maid"? Do you know the little 
things that make women like you? Why 
do "wonderful lovers" often become 
thoughtless husbands soon after marriage 
— and how can the wife prevent it? Do you 
know how to make marriage a perpetual 

In "The Philosophy of Love," Elinor 
Glyn answers these precious questions — 
and countless others. She places a magni- 
fying glass unflinchingly on the most in- 
timate relations of men and women. No 
detail, no matter how delicate or avoided 
by others, is spared. She warns you gravely, 
she suggests wisely, she explains fully. 

A book of this type, to be of great value, 
could not mince words. But while Madame 
Glyn calls a spade a spade — while she deals 
with strong emotions and passions in her 
frank, fearless manner — she nevertheless 
handles her subject so tenderly and sa- 
credly that the book can safely be read 
by any grown-up man or woman. In fact, 
anyone over eighteen should be compelled 
to read "The Philosophy of Love"; for, 
while ignorance may sometimes be bliss, 
it is folly of the rankest sort to be ignor- 
ant of the problems of love and marriage. 
As one mother wrote us: "I wish I had 
read this book when I was a young girl — 
it would have saved me a lot of misery and

Is It Worth The Price? 

Success is the result of intelligent labor. It is not acquired 
overnight. It comes thru well-directed efforts. The same 
law applies to attaining beauty. All women do not inherit 
this coveted gift but they can cultivate the integral parts that 
go to make up the whole — health, correct grooming, grace, 
charm, and a knowledge of how to dress. If one does not 
possess these things, time and labor will bring them. The 
means will justify the end. Beauty is the best means to

A new serial with a wide appeal. If you are a young girl standing at the threshold of 
life, the frank confessions of a woman who has lived deeply will be as guide posts on 
your journey thru life. If you are a mature woman you will appreciate mure fully 
the wisdom and truth embedded in the account of Mme. Vavara's life as written by 
herself to her youthful ward in a French convent. This clever woman, famous for her 
beauty and brains, does not hesitate to conceal anything in her own life which she be- 
lieves will tend to instruct this young girl. This story by Stanton Leeds is one to enjoy 
and to remember. 

Beauty Secrets for Every Woman 


The Second Crusade 

An Explanation and an Apology 

A CERTAIN person whose opinion we re- 
spect has said that an editorial should be 
more impersonal than our last one was — 
the one about the movies as a field of incredible 
contrast. But we cannot be impersonal about Mrs. 
Wallace Reid and her heart-breaking picture, 
"Human Wreckage." 

We confess to being among those doubting ones 
who questioned the motive and criticized the taste 
of this unprecedented film. We went to the open- 
ing night in Xew York frankly, out of curiosity, 
legitimate perhaps, but with no idea of praise or 
even of respect. 

And we, like many others remained to pray. 

No one could impugn the motives of Mrs. Reid 
if they had seen her standing up in a box, after the 
picture, while flowers in gracious tribute were laid 
at her feet ; standing there white faced and weary- 
eyed, the tears rolling down her cheeks, very near 
to collapse, a tragic, pitiful, inarticulate figure. 

Here is a gallant crusader who was not deterred 
by an adverse public opinion ; who bared her 

grief that others might see and be warned; who 
has sacrificed herself to the common good ; who has 
consecrated her life, more than nobly, intelligently, 
to the elimination of a ghastly traffic. 

"Human Wreckage," is a profoundly moving 
picture handled with dignity and restraint. There 
is nothing cheap or sensational about it. Quite the 
contrary. A tremendous and unmistakable sincerity 
animates everyone who had anything to do with it. 
It is a grim, terrific tragic indictment of stupidity 
and criminal indifference toward these "living 
dead," whose pitiable army is vaster than you or I 
ever dreamed of. 

Altho our motive be likewise misinterpreted, we 
say in all sincerity, that every man and woman in 
the United States should go to see this picture ; 
not as a Christian duty, but for the sake of being 
intelligently informed on a subject that has been 
heretofore shrouded in darkness. We realize, of 
course, that the only effectual appeal is to the 
emotions first. . . . Well . . . go to see the pic- 
ture. . . . That is all we ask.

The Camera 

Mr. Bausch Lens 

I DO NT know about a man and his valet ; but I know 
that no woman is a heroine to her cameraman. I 
know; I am one of them. From first to last I have 
photographed about every star in the business. 

The hardest woman I ever tried to photograph is Ina 
Clare. She has a difficult mouth which requires very 
careful treatment and she will not co-operate with you in 
this treatment. 

She can be very charming when she chooses ; but she 
is very sure of her position in the theater world and she 
isn't too much excited over the movies anyhow. The 
consequence is she will not give you the right amount of 
help necessary to solve the problem of photographing her 
difficult mouth. 

On the other hand, there is Mary Pickford. Mary 
is not the cinch to photograph that some people seem to 
suppose. Oddly enough, only one side of her face is 
ever photographed in profile. 

This was the most exasperating lesson that Ernst 
Lubitsch, the German director, had to learn when he 
began to direct in the Pickford studio. 

In Europe they have an entirely different standard of 
art. The public in Europe does not seem to insist that 
every heroine be fatally 
beautiful. They recognize 
the fact that plain women 
might also have a life story. 
In America, the movie pub- 
lic is frankly indifferent to 
the fate of homely women 
-on the screen at least. 

The first lesson that the 

astonished Lubitsch had to learn was that Mary Pickford 
had to do all her emotional storms with her right side to 
the camera. 

Mary helps the cameraman however so skilfully and 
adroitly that it is a cinch to take her pictures. You have 
to take care not to make her face look too long — and you 
leave the rest to Mary. In the projecting- rooms she 
studies her own, face as an Indian trailer studies foot- 
prints. She is a past mistress of make-up and she knows 
how to control her acting to co-operate in the fullest 
way imaginable with the cameraman. 

Marguerite Clark in her younger days, had a round 
baby face, but she was not so easy to photograph for all 
that. She had a way of wrinkling her brows that abso- 
lutely wrecked your best close-ups unless you arranged 
the lighting with great skill. The job of photographing 
Marguerite Clark was also complicated by her sister. This 
older sister is Miss Clark's business manager and general 
guide, philosopher and friend. She makes a great deal of 
trouble on the sets by interfering with the arrangements 
of the cameramen. 

Another girl who frowns away many good close-ups is 
Blanche Sweet. Like a lot of girls with real characters 

behind their beauty, Blanche 
has somewhat irregular 
features. She has a great 
width at the cheek bones 
and a face that tapers so 
rapidly- that it gives her the 
appearance of having hol- 
low cheeks — which she 
really hasn't. This effect

frowns away many a good close-up? And 
that Billie Dove (above) is particularly 
hard to photograph? And that John Barry- 
more (above) 'looks beautiful from any 
angle? And that Nazimova (right) directs 
her own lighting and so forth?

Man's Angle 

Confesses To 

lias to be overcome with lighting. Another difficulty you 
have to look out for with Blanche Sweet are her eye- 
brows. When she frowns, it gives the odd effect of eye- 
brows that grow straight across and meet. I do not wish 
to give the impression that she is not a beautiful girl ; 
because she is. The difficulty is that she has certain fea- 
tures which cast photographic shadows. 

To my mind, the most beautiful girl on the screen is 
the hardest to photograph. This is Mae Murray. With 
that little rose-bud, bee-kissed mouth, her aura of golden 
hair which stands about her head like a golden haze ; and 
her lithe beautiful body, she is a perfect picture. But 
these effects are not easily achieved. The cameraman 
has fairly to burn her up with lights. 

She spreads a white coat of liquid make-up that is like 
kalsomine over her whole face before she goes on the 
let Her bare legs and body are practically painted white. 

On the sets, they put a strong back light behind her 
which makes that beautiful hazy effect. They hit her 
full in the face with strong sunlight arcs. I dont see 
how she ever stands it without going blind. No girl on 
the screen ever used anything like the light and the make- 
up. She is very particular about her photography, but 
she knows her job and 
knows how to help the 

The direct opposite is 
Lillian Gish. She uses al- 
most no make-up at all. 
Beyond a little powder, Lil- 
lian is photographed just 
"as is." Where most girls 

spread on make-up, Lillian gets the same results by skil- 
ful lighting. She is lucky in having the same photogra- 
phers for many years. Billy Bitzer has reduced pi. 
graphing Lillian Gish to an exact science. He knowi 
every curve and angle to shoot from and to shoot at. 

Carol Dempster is a photographic problem ju>t in the 
exact ratio that you can get her to do her hair up on her 
head. Her eyes are lovely. When she raises her hair 
up on her head, her eyes become the center of the picture. 
When she used to insist upon wearing it in long cork- 
screw curls, it framed her face and made it lo6k thin. 
Like most young girls, however, she thought it made her 
look too old to wear it on top of her head. 

The most extraordinary instance of a woman refusing 
to help the cameraman was Doris Keene. She is too 
great an artist to be young and the evidence of her 
maturity is beginning to show at the corners of her mouth. 
In "Romance" she absolutely insisted upon using the 
same costume she had worn during the long and tri- 
umphant runs in London. One feature of this costume 
was a pair of jingly crystal earrings. The result wat 
that your eye was caught by the glitter of one ear- 
ring and traveled instinctively to the other earring, 

straight across the line of 
her mouth.

drove the cameramen to 
drink ; that was Laurette

You wouldn't believe that Tommy Meighan 
(left) was a difficult camera subject; or that 
Constance Talmadge (above) was even 
more so; or that Bert Lytell (above) was 
in the same class, as well as that appealing 
Carol Dempster (right). Now would you? 




Life's Little Ironies in Verse 


Constance Blessing Smith 

(~)H, once I loved deeply, 

(Some women do this; 
They fling all their freedom 
Away in a kiss.) 

Yet, wisdom or folly, 

That course lived its day, 

At present I'm using 
A much safer way. 

For now I love lightly, 
I love with a laugh, 

The thrill's quite as pleasing, 
The trouble — one half. 

will. When she made "Peg O' My Heart," she presented 
a fearful problem. She is a woman of mature years, as 
everyone knows, with a grown son. To make her look a 
girl of fourteen was considerable of an undertaking. 

When the picture was first started, she was very wilful 
and insisted on having her own way in every particular. 
She nearly drove the cameramen to suicide. 

Finally they resolved to discipline her. They took the 
pictures exactly as she directed them to be taken. Then 
they took her into 
the project ing-room 
and showed her 
how they looked. 
That cured her. 
From then on, she 
was a lamb in their 
hands and turned 
out a marvelously 
beautiful picture in 
which most of the 
close-ups, by the 
way, were made by 
placing her at quite 
a distance from the 
camera and using a 
telescopic lens. 

Even some of the 
great beauties of 
the screen are hard 
to photograph. One 
of the most difficult 
I ever saw was 
Billie Dove, who 
was a wonderfully 
beautiful girl. She 
had a bad shadow 
on her face. If you 
threw the light on 
her face to kill this 
shadow, you made 
her face look flat 
and broad. 

The same is true 
in a lesser degree 
with Constance Tal- 
madge. Constance 
is one of the most 
beautiful girls on 
the screen and one 
of the hardest to 

Norma Talmadge 
is a very curious 
problem for the 
cameraman. In any 
one position. Norma 
is not difficult to 
"shoot"' : but when 
she turns her head, 
it spoils the show — 
in other words, any 
one aspect of 
Norma is a compar- 
atively easy task, 
but changing versions of Nonna's face are difficult. 

Alice Joyce is much more beautiful than she screens; 
Mrs. Wallace Reid, much more slender; Priscilla Dean 
not nearly so tall ; Andree Lafayette taller, Marion 
Davies. fairer, face and hair, and so on. It is just as 
true to say that the camera changes us all (a little) as 
to say the camera does not lie. I can see both sides of 
that argument. 

Nazimova would be a homely woman but for the art

and brains she u>es in getting herself photographed. 
Every close-up of this great Slavic actress is practically a 
painting in which she herself, dictates the lights and 
shades and composition. 

Mary Astor, a new comer to the screen, has about the 
most perfect set of screen features I have ever shot. 
Actually, this young girl is rather insignificant-looking 
but she photographs like a million dollars. There is only 
one bad angle and that is a three-quarter view with her 

head drooped. 
These youngster- 
are no trouble at all. 
They do just what 
the director tells 
them to. Give them 
a few more years 
tho, and they'll be 
directing the direc- 
tors. It is those who 
are midway in their 
experience that 
make the trouble 
for us. and cause 
endless retakes. 

What applies to 
the women also ap- 
plies to the men of 
the screen. 

The easiest he- 
star to photograph 
is John Barrymore. 
He has a profile 
like a cut cameo. 
His manner i - 
charming ; every at- 
titude is grace per- 
sonified; his fac< 
one of the most ex- 
pressive and mobile 
it has ever been my 
privilege to shoot. 
It is true that he is 
a bit temperamental 
and one can never be 
wholly sure that he 
will be there, but if 
he is. there is no 

Valentino would 
be easy to photo- 
graph were it not 
for his ears. He 
has very small and 
misshapen ears 
which the camera- 
man has to be care- 
ful to hide. 

Tommy Meighan 
is rather hard to 
photograph, an< 
is Bert Lvtell. 

Dick' Barthel- 
mess, altho willing 
and anxious and 
handsome, presents considerable difficulties. His face is 
somewhat broad and has to be watched carefully. Ramon 
Navarro is another handsome youngster, but be is easy. 
Character actors always present a stiff problem. Some- 
times their make-up is so grotesque that the mere elonga- j 
tion or exaggeration of a single feature will burlesque a 
most serious effort. For all its problems my job is 
interesting, a regular handbook of human psychology. I 
wouldn't give it up for the world. 

I HAVE chased a butterfly, 

I have dreamed a dream, 
I have floated miles and miles 
Down a summer stream. 

I have always thought to find 

Deep reality, 
Something always led me on 

But eluded me. 
Will I ever find that thing 

Rooted like a tree? 

Passing loves I've often felt 

Deep within my heart. 
Stab they did but passed away — 

Of me were no part. 

Now my own has come to me, 

Happiness I've found ; 
I am rooted like a tree 

In the solid ground; 
No more errant, restless thoughts, 

No more roaming 'round. 


A. R. Wagneb 

WHEX a girl 

With youth and prettiness, 
Glances at a man 
Demurely under shadowed lids. 
With carmined lips apart 
In half a smile. 
And elicits no response — 
It is worse 
Than the tragedy 
Of the first grev hair. 




Famous Heroines No. 1. Posed by Claire Windsor 

Here is Madame Du Barri's own description of herself taken from her memoirs: "My lovely face, 
my locks which waved most enchantingly over my eyes, which were melting, sparkling and liquid 
as crystal, my mouth, small and red as a cherry, my delicately formed nose, my excessively 
fair skin, my elegant and sylphlike figure, in fact, the perfect beauty of my person made 
my mother conceive the greatest hopes of success." Everyone knows of the tragic "success" of 
the little milliner's girl with Louis XV, that eventually led her an ignominious dance to the guillotine 


There is an air of nobility about Alma Rubens, with 

her sculptural early Italian face, the fine pallor of her 

skin, the remoteness of her eyes. . . . 

Divine Discontent 


Alma is frank, too, frank and direct. She 
doesn't "set the stage." She talks like' one 
young person to another, without an ever 
present sense of "I wonder how this will 
look in print." 

Some gelatin goddesses might, for in- 
stance, think it more judicious not to say 
that they'd leave the screen if they could 
do something else better. Not Alma. Be- 
tween you and me, we hope that she doesn't 
leave the screen even if she does develop 
into an Edith Wharton or an Anzia 
Yzierska or something. For we cant im- 
agine Alma doing anything, even writing, 
better than she does screening. It would 
be a pity to hide her sculptural, early-Ital- 
ian face behind a noiseless typewriter. Her 
art is noiseless, as it is, why not leave well 
enough alone? 

Besides, it will probably seem incredible 
to most fans to know that to be a star, a 
cinema celebrity, is not enough. To be 
feted and adored, publicized and pictured, 
and bowed down to — what more could the 
heart of a maid demand ? 

But the heart of Alma Rubens desires 

Over the Honey Dew melon at the Ritz, 
our talk went something like this : 

Alma : I- wish to goodness I could be a 
writer. I wish it so much that I've begun 
to try my hand at it, and if I succeed . . . 
(gesture of eliminating several studios.) 

Myself: Well, if you do, what then? 
(Continued on page 76) 


N a recent article 
in a fan maga- 
zine Alma Ru- 
bens is referred to 
as "a Duchess" and . 
other elegant things. 
We get the point, 
exactly. There is an 
air of nobility about 
Alma. Perhaps it 
lies in her seeming 
abstraction ; a sense 
of noble detachment from 
the more harassing and 
mundane things of life; a 
sort of plastic serenity ; a 
garment of glamour cover- 
ing undertones of purple 
and passion. Or it may lie 
in the set of her head, poised 
and proud; in the remote- 
ness of her eyes, when she 
is gazing into space; in the 
fine pallor of her skin, the 
firm modeling of her lips. 

But Alma is red blooded 
as -well as blue blooded. She 
is human as well as haughty. 

(Twenty-two J 


This is Alma as we shall see her in "Under the Red Robe." But she 
is not satisfied with motion picture starring. She wants to write. . . . 
She says: "I admire most those people who are able to sacrifice every- 
thing . . . for the sake of the thing they most want to do and can do best" 



European Studios 

agree to meet each other later, at a fixed date, to relate 
what has happened during their separation. The girl 
arrives in her luxurious dress, happy at her success, and 
the boy sends a mutual friend with a letter. He cannot 
come, he is very ill, and about to die. But as films now 
require happy endings, George Pearson, who wrote this 
story, was obliged to modify the epilog. And we then 
know that all this is the story of the book our young 
author is writing. 


It is not the first time that two producers have directed 
together a picture in France. This happened before the 
war at the Pathe studios. And now, two good directors. 
L. Mercanton (who made "Phroso" and many other films. 
one of which, with the late famous stage actress Mme. 
Rejane) and Rene Hervil, have presented their new photo- 
play "Sarati the Terrible." This is a story of adventure 
which takes place in Africa and which has proved very 
lucky to French producers. 

Two brothers who are rivals and who will find at the 
end a nice looking girl who will happily metamorphose 

"' I 'HE English studios are just like 
the American ones," Betty 
Compson said to me when I 
saw her for the first time at the 
studios of the Famous Players- 
Lasky in London, "I mean this 
one," she added, thus confirm- 
ing what Mae Marsh had said 

Before us the studio No. 1 
presented the aspect of the 
Paris Moulin Rouge, with its 
orchestra, its crowds of dancers, 
while the electric wings of the 
mills were turning slowly. Some of 
the dancers were considering the Ameri- 
can star with considerable curiosity. On 
his pedestal, near the camera, Graham Cutts, 
the director, smiled at us from time to time. 
"He is a very clever producer," said Betty, 
*'I am glad to work with him, and I like 
the story so much besides." 

"Woman to Woman" is the title of the 
play which ran so successfully in England, 
and which will be the name of the British 
film in which Betty Compson plays lead. 
She will be seen as a dancer of the Moulin 
Rouge, where an Englishman (Clive Brook) 
will notice her and fall in love with her. 
And both will be happy ... at the end 
of the picture. 

"Love, Life and Laughter," otherwise 
called"The Story of Tip-Toes, "the new film 
directed by George Pearson, has obtained a 
legitimate success. It tells us of the adven- 
tures of an ambitious girl (Betty Balfour) 
who succeeds in her ambition to become a 
music-hall star, and of a boy (Harry Jonas) 
who remains as he is, a poor author. Both

t hi the occasion oi the celebration "f the 
centenary of the great scientist Pasteur, Jean 
Benoit Levy made a picture which follows 
faithfully the principal episodes of the life 
of the tamou> benefactor of humanity. In 
spite oi its actuality, this is a very interesting 
picture possessing the advantage of being 
educational and also at- 
tractive as a story when it 
shows to us how Pasteur 
made, after long hesita- 
tions, his first experience 
on the body of the little 
Meister. The role of Pas-

by Charles Mosnier.

Ashes of Vengeance 


1AM Anne de Breux. 1 am a little girl and a cripple. 
1 have many long hours with nothing to do, so I have 
decided to write down the story oi mj sister, my 
itiful sister, Yoeland. It is an exciting tale, full of 

thrills and romance, and while it was happening, nobod) 
I much attention to me, but 1 kept m\ eyes open and 
;ned and thought, and my darling Rupert and his — 

that i». Yoeland told me of the things 1 could not see. 

Yoeland's story really began when my brother, the 

Ote itc la Roche, brought home to our castle, M. Rupert 

Vrieacs as his bond servant. The De Vrieacs, altho 

they are Huguenots, are as noble and of as ancient a 

lineage as our own. It is another story how the last scion 

its illustrious family came to be a bond ser- 
vant of ours, and perhaps 1 would better 

tell that first. 
The De Vrieacs and the De Breux 

were bitter enemies, had been for g 

several generations. Altho I can- i I 

not understand how anyone 

could hate either Rupert or 

Charles, the feud between our ^| 

families was started by the 

unhappy and unfortunate 

marriage of Yvonne de 

Marbleu and Raoul de 

Yrieac, and has been 

ended only by the mar- 
riage of But I 

must not tell the end 

of my story first. 
It was after the 

cruel massacre of 

day, when Rupert 

was the affianced of 

Margot de Vain- 

ceoire, another 

Protestant. My 

brother Charles, 

who is irresistible to 

women, who wears 

lace at his wrists, 

tho they are hard 

as steel with gallant 

sword play, had 

started a flirtation 

with the Vainceoire, 

a f roward piece, to be 

sure. He did it mere- 
ly to annoy and har- 
ass his enemy Rupert. 

but the girl, it seems, 

took it seriously, and 

when young Rupert found 

her in the arms of Charles, 

he immediately challenged 

him to a duel. 

Now these are hot-blooded 

times and altho I am young and 

carefully guarded the reports of 

these stirring conflicts reach even 

my secluded life. The Comte de la 

Roche is one of the finest swordsmen 

in France, but Rupert bested him and in- 
stead of taking his life as is customary, pre 


Mimd ins Libert; to him with intuiting I do 

not understand these amenii but I know it 

humiliated my brother to a< i epl anything from nil enemy. 
h was intolerable to one of his proud spin' 

life to One he hated, and < bailee dreamed and thought 
of nothing but re\cnge. 

I le got it much sooner than he expet ted it, too. It 
during the terrible days oi August, 1572, and the I 
that Margol de Vainceoire was in Paris and a Huguenot, 

and that Charles was also there and .1 I atholie, that he 
was able to guarantee her safe e-cape from the city. He 
saw tO il thai she was not one of the thousands of mar- 
tyred Protestants whose blood will forever cry for ven- 
geance on the house of the De Medici. The price 

he exacted of Rupert for the safety Of hi> 

fiancee was five years of serfdom in our 

household. He was revenged indeed. 
The ignominy was now I )e Vrn 
but Rupert has borne himself 
nobly and comported himself 
with such exceeding honor that 
out of the ashes of vengeance 
has come at last love, tri- 
i, umphant and gloriou-. 

When Rupert first came 
to Castle de la Roche in 
my brother's train, he 
was treated exactly like 
any other of our servi- 
tors. His mien was 
haughty and unbend- 
ing, not at all that of 
a servant, but he was 
never insubordinate 
in the performance 
of his duties, tho it 
must often have 
chafed and galled 
his proud spirit. 
Charles seemed to 
take particular de- 
light in humiliating 
him and as for 
Yoeland, well, she 
treated him worse 
than the scullions 
that helped in the 
great kitchen. That 
is. she ignored him 
altogether, or if she 
wanted any disagree- 
able duty done she 
would say. "Here, fel- 
ow, take this refuse out 
to the swineherd, and 
make haste to return. I 
want my hound plucked and 
brushed before even." 
Such unwelcome tasks were 
usually left to the lowest meni- 
als in our retinue, and the fact 
that Rupert performed them always 
with a grave and deferential courtesy 
often gave my sister to blush. Yoeland 
was a ravishing woman, with hair like a 
falcon's wing and skin like the red and white 


The fascinating Comte de la Roche with his men in the inn 
fought the duel that resulted in intensifying the family 

roses that clambered over the castle wall. When she 
blushed she was more than beautiful. Rupert's mouth 
was stern but his eyes laughed, laughed at Yoeland when 
she ordered him about and that made her self-conscious 
and uncomfortable, and she ordered him about the more, 
and played harder than ever, the great lady. Sometimes 
I was wont to think Rupert did it on purpose, tho of that, 
I cannot be sure. Even so, he must have been dolorous 
indeed to be separated from the lady of his heart and to 
be serving' in so shameful a capacity in his enemy's 


I loved him from the first. 
so tall and to me, tender as 
the mother I had long since 
lost. He used to carry me 
all over the castle gardens 
in his strong arms, Yoeland 
walking arrogantly before. 
Sometimes Yoeland would 
forget to be cool and severe. 
"Ah, Rupert," she once 
said, in that husky sweet 
voice of hers, that was the 
toast of all her admirers. 
' 'Tis a pity to see you 
thus. I shall speak to my 

"Nay, Lady," Rupert re- 
plied, drawing himself up 
proudly, "I pray you say no 
word in that direction. A

no matter what

And then Yoe- 
land became more 
aloof and cruel 
than ever. We De 
Breux. alas, are 
cursed with a 
flaming and in- 
tractable pride, 
and Yoeland, high 
spirited and great 
hearted tho she 
was, suffered 
from it too. Even 
after Rupert had 
heroically risked 
his life for u> in 
a battle with one 
of the starving 
wolves that oft- 
times prowl about 
the castle, it did 
not alter her 
mood. She seem- 
ed to resent the 
fact that she. too, 
owed her life to 
Rupert. Of that 
awesome battle. I 
cannot speak, it 
was too terrifying, 
and altho I loved 
and do still love 
my sister dearly I 
fell out of pa- 
tience with her 
for her attitude 
toward so gallant 
a gentleman. If 
I had known then 
as much as I do now, I could have understood that 
because she talked of him all the time, even tho that talk 
was all abuse, was that he interested her more than she 
would have found possible to admit. 

"You think this oaf, handsome little Anne?"' she would 

"Yes, truly." I would answer. "And he is no oaf!" 
"Well, I like him not. I find him most ill favored, dour 
and gloomy as a donjon keep. I like him not." 

Affairs progressed in this wise for some time and then 
something happened. Something always happens, give it 
but time. My uncle, the Vicomte de Briege, came one day 

to pay us a visit. He 
brought most unwelcome 
tidings. Denise. his fair 
daughter and my sweet 
cousin, he had betrothed to 
the Due de Tours, a most 
wicked and profligate man 
but of great estates and 
riches. This was grievous 
news to Y r oeland. for she 
loved her cousin dearly; 
and wdien she heard my 
Aves that night, she wept 
a little and I could say 
naught to comfort her. 

" 'Tis sad. sweet sister, to 
marry where you do not 
love," she said, kneeling be- 
side my cot, "and I know 
Denise cares only for that 

where he and Rupert de Vrieac

"Ah, sister," 1 entreated, "subject him not to this 
further humiliation." 

"He i- our enemy, the enemy of our house," she 
peated in a resolute voice, as tho reminding herseli 
that fact. 

\ml so, when my uncle returned to the Chateau Briege 
mpanied l>y hi> niece, Voeland, Rupert was one of her 
entourage. I hated to see him go. \ltho everyone is 
kinci to me here, from Nannette, my tirewoman, up to 
Yoeland, 1 am often lonely. Rupert \\a> now my dear 
friend, m\ true knight, and when we had to part I gave 
him a talisman. as ladies always do when their knights 
ride a-venturing, to have and to hold while he should be 
away. It was a lock of hair, the smooth, fine flaxen hair 
clipped from the wax doll Charles had brought me from 
Brittany. 1 wanted to give him a lock of mj own, hut 
1 wasn't allowed to cut it and 1 knew it wouldn't really 
matter to Rupert. 

They found a gay party at the Chateau when they 
arrived. There was a temporary truce between the Catho- 
lics and the Huguenots, and a great many of both sides 
were there, including

Suffice it to say, they planned an attack on all the men, 
of the household, including my precious Voeland. 

But the ever vigilant and valiant Rupert learned of their

room, with sixteen of his men who had come with Andre 
to see their lord once more, to defend her. Thru a mis-

This beautiful sacrifice 
of honor had been made

cepted the suit, that very 
night, of a nephew of the 
Due de Tours, and sent 
hack Rupert's ring and 
the news of her engage- 
ment by Andre, his trust- 
ed henchman whom he 
had left with Margot for 
her protection. She must 
have been a poor thing 
indeed to jilt so fine a 
man as Rupert and that 
he should have grieved 
over so faithless a crea- 
ture, cause- me discom- 
fort to this day. It was 
perhaps a greater blow 
to his pride than to his 
heart ; and to think he 
had to keep his oath of 
sen ice, tho naught could 
come of it; to have 
to endure the humilia- 
tion of a servant's lot 
and no reward at the 
end of it. 

Ah. well, these things 
are ordered for the best 
1 am sure. Altho I have 
not lived very long, I 
ha\e had long times in 
which to think, and I 
discovered that this blow- 
had softened Yoeland's 
heart toward him and 
piqued her intere-t as

Yoeland de Breux takes leave of her brother as she is about to pay a visit to her uncle. Rupert is now her lacquey 

taken tho understandable sense of hospitality Yoeland 
insisted that the Due be allowed to join them. This 
proved a very serious mistake, for the men outside then 
became more determined than ever to get the Due. 
Inflamed by good red Burgundy and exhorted by the 
half-wit serving-maid, they stormed the turret-room. 
Right valiantly Rupert's men fought to 
save the lives of their little garrison. 
They were outnumbered two to 
one and their besiegers held 
the point of vantage be 
sides.- I am thankful 
I did not know about 
this until it was over. 
I could scarce have 
lived thru that night. 
One by one Rupert's 
men were killed or 
wounded. The stone 
steps ran with their 
loyal blood. The de- 
voted Andre was 
mortally wounded and 
died in his master's 
arms. So perilous had 
their position become 
that my brave, my 
peerless Yoeland 
seized a sword, forgot 
her maidenhood and 
fought courageously 
beside her defender. 
Then Rupert's doub- 
let was ripped open 
by a ferocious sword 
thrust which pierced 
his side, and he col- 

That would have 
been the end of both 
my loved ones, had 
not young Philibert 

de Bois and his men come unexpectedly to their rescue 
and put the offenders to rout. Father Paul, who was the 
chaplain of the Chateau, had let himself down from the 
east wing on a rope made of bedding and tapestries and 
swum the moat and never halted till he reached De Bois. 
'Twas a fine brave thing to do, for a priestly man unused 
to the hardships and vigors of fighting. 

Both Yoeland and Rupert told me 
the tale of the encounter, each 
laying all credit and praise 
at the other's feet, tho I 
doubt not that it was 
equally divided be- 
tween them. Rupert 
is utterly fearless and 
Yoeland, for a wom- 
an, the bravest I have 
seen. It was when 
Rupert lay sore 
wounded that Yoe- 
land. of the high 
hand, realized that she 
loved him. Forgot was 
all her pride, her for- 
mer hatred. She let 
him read the tender 
message in her eyes 
and his own, tho they 
were dark with pain, 
answered her in kind. 
She nursed him with 
all care, finding hap- 
piness in the doing of 
it, until one day she 
sat mending his torn

carefully in the innermost pocket, 

Alas! She thought it was Margot's hair and thai 
Rupert still loved her. Whereupon she became all cool 
.mil distant again and left the nursing to the servants. 
Rupert could not, of course, understand this change and 
it wounded him deeply so that he was longer getting well 
than need be. M> sistei cherished her grief and dis- 
lintmcnt .in secret anil put on a bold and indifferent 
t for outsiders. If 1 cpuld but have been there to

I'd take her mind out of its .sorrowful channel, Yoeland 
schemed and put into operation plans for the wedding of 
Denise and Philibert, which was successfully consum- 
mated. But m\ sister's troubles were not yet over ; the 
■ unbearable and trying was yet before her. On her 
back from the wedding, she was captured by the 
Due's men, right on the highway, and carried by them, 
bound and gag- 
ged, back to the 
turret - room. 
There Rupert 
lay likewise 
bound and help- 

"YVhat is the

The evil creature entered tin- room with the red-hoi

Rupert drew in a mighty breath and the hue turned away. 
Suddenly, there was a sound of voices and many mailed 
lists beating on the door. It gave way before the on- 
slaught and Rupert's own men entered the room. Lupi 

they slew with- 
out a qualm and 
awaited their 
1 o r d's orders 
about the Due. 
Rupert had the 
room cleared of 
all but himself 
and the Due and 
there despite his 
wounds gave 
him a chance for 
his life in hon- 
orable duel. He 
was spared the 
necessity of kill- 
ing the wicked 
'man, however, 
by the sudden 
entrance of the 
poor half-wit 
serving - maid 
whom the Due 
had wronged, 
who stabbed him 
fearfully in the 
back. That was 
the end of a 
coward and an 
u n s crupulous 
wretch. It is 
sometimes given 
to these humble 
agents to be the 
instruments of a 
divine justice. 

Yoeland then 
returned to Cas- 
tle de la Roche, 
weary and sad. I 
was so glad to see 
her and Rupert 
that I cried 
tears like a ba- 
by. Whereupon 
Rupert took me 
up in his arms 
to comfort me, 
and pulling out that yellow lock of doll's hair, held it up 
for me to see. "Here," he said, "is your talisman. See 
how faithfully I have kept it for my little lady." 

Yoeland gave one look at the thing, blushed a rosy 
red. and fled. Rupert sighed after her, and I sighed too, 
for I did not even know that they lov^d each other.

Elinor Glyn on the Technique of the Scenario 


"IV TO writer 
I V can logical- 
ly object to 
having his story 
hashed about by a 
scenario depart- 
ment, until he has 
thoroly learned 
the movie angle 
of his business, 
and has sent in 
his picture play in 
the right form." 

This is the de- 
cisive statement 
made by Elinor 
Glyn, who after 
years of fame as 
an authoress, and 
as an intelligent 
and charming 
woman, remains 
apparently un- 
spoiled. Talking 
with her in her 
drawing-room at 
the Hotel Am- 
bassador in New 
York, where she 
remained for a 
few days recently, 
before going on to 
Hollywood to di- 
rect the picturiza- 
tion of her novel 
"Three. Weeks," 
I was enchanted 
to discover a 
famous personali- 
ty who admits the 
necessity of pub- 
licity, and who 
even asks to, be 
granted one boon 
from it — that she 
shall be quoted 

Slender of 
figure in a pastel 
negligee of silk, 
copper-red plaits 
of hair about her 

ears, gracing her with the medieval quality of Maeterlinck's 
Monna Vanna, narrow, fascinating eyes of sea green — 
this is the Elinor Glyn of today. It is truly difficult to 
fancy three grandchildren awaiting her return to England ! 

"You know," she continued, choosing her words care- 
fully, the delightful music of a pure English voice slightly 
accentuated, "the modern author should make it a busi- 
ness to master the technique of scenario writing if he 
wants to have firm ground to stand upon, in requesting 
to see his works pictured coherently, as well as artistically. 
Authors in general have not come to the stark realization 
that they must practically do away with the colorful 
beauty of words — a real sacrifice, I grant you. 

"One of the best ways that I know for gaining the 
experience of this new technique, is to place a chair or 

lounge in front of 
a blank wall or 
curtain, and 
seated there un- 
disturbed, im- 
agine one's story 
passing by : the 
figures, the mise 
en scene, all, 
across that blank 
space. You must 
see in thought 
your entire story, 
without the words 
that you have so 
carefully used to 
build up your 
plot. Put it all be- 
fore yourself in 
action. Watch it 
go by, asking al! 
the time, how is 
this? Does it lag, 
or does it gallop? 
Remember, there 
is nothing >o ex- 
plain all this to 
you, the unfold- 
ing of your story, 
but the action. 

"The art of 
writing for the 
movies is as dif- 
ferent from other 
writing, as is the 
art of the violin- 
ist from that of 
the pianist. No 
one would think 
of asking the 
master violinist to 
play the piano 
with the same de- 
gree of skill that 
he would have in 
playing his 
chosen instru- 
ment. Would you 
expect the pianist 
to take up his fel- 
low musician's 
fiddle and do him- 
self justice? No. But, if either one spent an equal 
amount of time in developing the technique for each 
other's instruments, you might then be justified in asking 
for satisfying, artistic results. 

"And so it is, when writing f -r the movies. But !" 

Here Mrs. Glyn stopped for a moment, an expression of 
challenge crossing her face. "When a writer has be- 
come a master of this technique, he has every right to 
complain about the absurd mill thru which his original 
idea is drawn and mangled, changed and distorted, to 
such an extent that upon production he blinks his eyes 
in amazement, thinking perhaps some mistake has been 
made, that it is not really his picture after all ! 

"Every story has to go thru about seven departments

The Powers Behind the Screen 

Who's Who in the Motion Picture Business 

Editor's Xotk: This is the first of a series of five articles on the history of 

the busintfS end of the motion picture, and a discussion and description of the 

truly great personalities who have put the movitS on the maf 

POPU1 AK interest in the vital structure and frame- 
work supporting that incredible bonanza, the motion 
picture business in America, has multiplied and in- 
creased to the proportions of a gigantic national question 
mark, since the movie magnates two years ago parted 
the bulrushes and discovered in the bread basket of 
politics, a Moses to lead them from Egypt. This vcar a 
razor-edge has been given that same thirst for informa- 
tion by the government's attempt to discover if there were 
in the picture industry a combination in restraint of trade. 
Reading the Federal Trade Commission's investigations, 
as published in the daily newspapers, people began to ask: 
Who are these persons so prominently mentioned ? Who 
are Zukor, Laemmle, 
Cochrane, Hodkinson. 
Williams, Rowland, 
Fox, Powers, Shee- 
han. Selznick, Gold- 
wyn and so on. and 
just exactly what do 
they stand for? 

Incredible as it may 
seem to those close to 
the tense drama of 
the pictures' business 
and politics, they do 
ask these very ques- 
tions, just as a year 
before they demanded 
to know why on earth 
Will H. Hays should 
resign as Postmaster 
| General, even to head 
the chamber of com- 
merce of motion pic- 
tures, even for $150,- 
000 a year. 

"Search me !" said 
the man on the street. 
Even those who 
should be better in- 
formed, who see fur- 
ther than the gifts of 
a bankroll, who look 
far down the widen- 
ing avenue of the fu- 
ture where statesmen 
are bound to adven- 
ture, even these 
shook their heads over 
Hays, muttering.

dians, the stories thai entrance us at the cinema, arc no 

more than the advertisements of a gold mine, the herald* 
of an army, an army with commanders and even a field 
marshal who foresaw, in part, the mass impact of pic 
tures upon the hearts and minds of a world of people. 

Foreseeing it, he attempted its- control. The attempt 
brought disputes and battles. Came the peacemaker, then. 
but to explain why and how he came, to suggest some- 
thing of the vision before him, something of that vast 
and majestic view of an unconquered empire of emotions 
— to do this convincingly, we must go back a way. 

It need not be too long a way. The history of the 

motion picture starts 
in the eighties with 
experiments that led 
to patents, but it was 
not till early in this 
century that the Mo- 
tion Picture Patents 
Company and its sub- 
sidiary, the General 
Film Company (com- 
prising Edison, Bio- 
graph, Vitagraph, Es- 
sanay, Kalem, Melies, 
Selig and others), be- 
gan marketing these 
patents at a profit by 
selling to theater own- 
ers, called exhibitors 
in the trade, the right 
to use them along 
with the manufac- 
tured film. 

Because it control- 
led these patents, the 
General Film Com- 
pany was the only 
source of supply. The 
little arcade owners 
found themselves 
soon in a state of 
feudal dependence. 
This is shown by 
court records. Ex- 
hibitors, those who 
dared, protested, and 
among these last was 
Adolph Zukor. at that 
time, ten years ago.

nickelodeons in the

called, they kept him waiting. One hour. Two hours.

HAVE spent most of my liberally 
literary career, well, liberal anyway, 
writing about movie stars, ingenues, 
vampires, grande dames, ad lib. And I 
would be hard put to it to remember one 
who was not possessed of pulchritude of 
one sort or another, many who were 
bearing the banners of an abortive youth 
and almost none who did not bear' in' 
some wise a first or second cousinship to 
the well-known bisque doll, or "Cy- 
therea,'' or something. 

Few, if any, are frankly what they 
are. Few have struggled long and dis- 
couraging years, bringing up a family, 
doing their own work, constantly going 
without this or that, constantly frightened by the 
twin Ogres, Bread and Rent, and still preserving 
within themselves, intact, the triumphantly unex- 
tinguished torch of Art. There are so many ways 
out of this, when one is young and pretty, so many 
short-cuts, so many detours. 

An Old Story 


Vera Gordon is what she has always been and 
must always be — herself. She haB in incal- 
culable measure the sympathetic, world-endur- 
ing, passionate and patient artist-soul. To 
the left is a character study and below her 
latest portrait. We shall see her soon again 
in "Potash and Perlmutter" 

But Vera Gordon has justified my faith in many 
things — even stars. Here is one "artist," and she 
is that, who has travailed and come thru. Oh, it's 
an old story, I know. All opinions to the contrary, 
I believe that mute, inglorious Miltons have lived 
and loved and died . . . still mute and still in 
glorious. But it ceases to be an old story after ont 
has come thru. Then is the test called acid. Fail- 
ure is easy to bear for great and humble souls. But 
Success ! Success is another matter. Many a great 
and humble soul, stoically simple and erect under 
the most bludgeoning blows of obscurity, has faced 
about and showed a front of brass, when Success 
has come. 

But Vera Gordon is what she has always been 
and must always be, Vera Gordon. Herself. She 
is stout. And she doesn't let it annoy her. She 
dresses plainly and without any attempt at re-mak- 
ing herself. If you saw her coming out of the door 
of her apartment, you would rate her as merely 
another Jewish woman going to market to buy 
matza for the "fem'ly." That is, if you didn't look

"Anyhow," said our peerless pal and critic at the above 
mentioned movie, "Elaine Hammerstein's interpretation 
of the Queen is consistent, if nothing else." 

"Yes," we answered — and you'll die laughing — "the 
Flavia lasts."

At the climax of the most passionate tete-a-tete be- 
tween the queen and Rassendyl, a subtitle remarked: 
"W hat is life without the one you love?" 

"You said it," intensely muttered one-of-those-for- 
whom-the-movies-are-made. No doubt these grown-up 
eleven-year-olds have run right down thru history. "Give 

me liberty or give me " thundered Patrick Henry in 


"Th'ow 'at gemmun a fish, suh!" remarked one of the

In the New

Harriette Un- 
derbill speaks of 
Baby Peggy as 
being four 
years old. On 
the same day, 
Quinn Martin, 
in the New York 
World, discloses 
her age as six. 

And yet both of 
them, we'd bet, 
would hop on some 
poor director if he 
made the slight error of 
having an armored tank 
in the Battle of Hastings.

They agree, however, that Baby 
Peggy is the most talented child 
actress on the screen. The polite 
question is raised whether Baby 
Peggy, with her remarkable intelligence, 
is eligible to the child motion picture 
actress class. We know of others, in 
their early twenties and thirties. . . .

Speaking of Things That Have To 
such as the method in which a movie ingenue 
enters her father's Wall Street office, why 
are the organists in the movie theaters per- 
mitted a constant ego-debauch of what, we 
suppose, they imagine is improvisation? With 
the innumerable modern improvements a four- 
manual organ carries, all these doctors of music 
seem to be able to produce is detached grunts and 

squeals, disassociated snatches and fragments in lacerat- 
ingly sudden crescendos and the Big Bertha-like rumblings 
of the sixty- four-foot diapasons.

Such performance on the noblest of instruments per- 
meated our troubled spirit at "Trilby," and Heaven knows 
"Trilby" was irritating enough. And now we have two 
standards to judge a bad movie by. A — one that puts us 
to sleep and B — one that makes us conscious of the organ. 
If something is not done to these organists, we are going 
to join the Kuklux Klan and have every miscreant chained 
to a steam calliope with riveting, blasting and subway ex- 
press attachments, and place them in vaulted cells with a 
triple echo.

As a matter of fact, there probably is heavy rivalry 
between the musical directors in the Ritzy movie houses 
and the organists. "You go your way," says the organist 
to the conductor, "and I'll go mine." 

Whereupon the full orchestra and the complete organ 
give a joint rendition of Tschaikowsky's "1812"

The Celluloid Critic 

Laurence Reid Reviews the Latest Photoplays 



ITH the fall promising an unusually 
heavy crop of good pictures — so good in 
fact that the producers must needs lease 
several Broadway legitimate theaters to give them 
extended runs, along comes Paramount and steals 
a march on the field. They have heaten the gun 
— to use an expression of cinder-path circles — 
with "Hollywood" which comes as the real saving 
grace of a summer burdened with disappointing 
attractions. Merely a handful have scored and 
these will not reach the open country until the 
leaves have turned a golden russet. 

This "Hollywood" is at once the most inter- 
esting and novel excursion into Picture Land 
that has ever raced across a screen. True, Rupert 
Hughes used a similar idea in "Souls for Sale," but where 
he faltered was in treating his subject without drawing 
upon his imagination. He fol- 
lowed conventional lines in 
conceiving a story which pre- 
sented a girl reaching stardom 
in the movies only after she 
had encountered the cus- 
tomary pitfalls. The manner 
in which she was thrust into 
pictures carried a familiar 
theatric touch, and the intro- 
duction of various celebrities 

Mr. Rcid selects "Hollywood," directed by 
the man who was responsible for "The 
Covered Wagon," James Cruze, as the best 
photoplay of the month. He says, " 'Holly- 
wood' is the most interesting and novel 
excursion into Picture Land that has ever 
raced across a screen" 

of the silversheet bordered upon circus publicity. 
In other words they composed a separate unit — 
a body of stars who had nothing in common with 
the development of the story. Furthermore tht 
author exposed the tricks of the profession — thus 
destroying the illusion. His was an excursion 
into a fictional Hollywood. And one could not 
accept it as real. 

Tom Geraghty and Frank Condon, on the 
other hand, have painted a genuine Hollywood — 
the studio center serving as a background for the 
telling of a semi-whimsical, semi-wistful story 
of a screen-struck girl who, because of the adula- 
tion of her small-town villagers, thought herself 
destined for the heights of stardom. How deftly drawn is 
this character may be appreciated in the modest assump- 
tion of greatness. She thinks she is beautiful and 

talented — yet there is nothing 
of a superiority complex about 
her. Where the authors in- 
troduce a real novel touch is 
in having her fail where her 
plain relatives have no trouble 
at all in posing before the

-morous possibilities of such 
a plot — you can imagine the

unlimited opportunities to emphasize all the color, back- 
ground and detail of studio life. It is at once humorous 
and tragic, wistful and quaint. 

James Cruze, whose good-luck star is following him 
persistently (he jumped right into "Hollywood" after 
"The Covered Wagon"), has brought out all its spirit, 
vitality, charm and humor. He has deftly balanced each 
element so that it progresses evenly without once adding a 
single false scene. It is another triumph for him — but the 
major honors go to the authors for conceiving a genuinely 
novel play. One may appreciate that it is a well-con- 
structed story in the manner 
which the girl's struggle for 
recognition is visualized from 
the day that she looks on 
enraptured at a movie in a 
typical picture theater back 
home — to the day when she 
realizes that she has failed. 
Each effort she makes to get 
into the circle of Fortune's 
Darlings is drawn with all its 
emphasis. There is a reason 
for everything and everything 
is in place. 

The girl goes to Hollywood be- 
cause her quaint grandfather 
must have a healthy 
climate. One indi 
cation of rhyme 
and reason. 
The old man is 
a type and is 
chosen, tho he 
didn't seek the 
job. While we 
are mentioning 
these charac- 
ters, let us 
state that they 
appear the 
more genuine 
because Cruze 
selected them 
from stock- 
thus they appear to be 
everyday folks. Hope Drown 
plays the girl with wistful 
charm and a depth of under- 
standing, while Luke Cos- 
grave is another Frank 
Bacon as the quaint grandpa. 
He undergoes a complete 
metamorphosis in Hollywood 
and really provides a most 
colorful and amusing charac- 

So the girl makes the rounds of the 
studios and naturally encounters one star 
after another. You will see there is even a 
reason for their introduction without exploiting their 
fame to catch the shekels at the box-office. Directors, 
casting directors, and studio managers give her the cold 
shoulder. And the details which show her adventures 
on the lots are accurate and interesting. A large assort- 
ment of close-ups are given of Meighan, Doug, Mary, the 
De Milles,'Will Rogers, Bill Hart, George Fawcett, 
Hope Hampton, Ben Turpin — and approximately thirty 
others — including Fatty Arbuckle, whose moment is brief 
as the casting window is closed in his face. 

The biggest mirthful moment is the result of a dream 
visualized by the girl's rural lover as he tosses in a

zau." Below:

Pullman on his way to Hollywood. He fancies her being 
pursued by sheiks 'n' everything. And in every episode 
as long as the dream continues, there is Laurence Wheat 
in his B. V. D.'s shaving himself. He may be on a busy 
corner of Los Angeles or a member of a wild orgy in 
some Arabian palace. But is always shaving. A pic- 
turesque, erotic dream which touches the high spots of 
spectacular appeal, adventure and humor. 

Eventually all the girl's relatives get into the movies. 
Even the rural swain has no difficulty in signing a con- 
tract. The conclusion shows them happily married in one 

of the colossal mansions which 
are presided over by successful 
stars. Twin babies are their 
reward. Even they are selected 
for small bits. And the bird is 
not forgotten. He supplies at- 
mosphere. Thus they all get 
into the movies except the girl. 
And her failure rings true. 

A picture which serves as 
rich and colorful entertainment 
— packed with humor and 
pathos — a picture which also 
serves in stopping screen-struck 
girls from making the pil- 
grimage to Hollywood, think- 
ing that the fortunes of 
the Make - Believe 
world are theirs 
for the asking. 
Such fine story 
interest, such 
excellent de- 
tails — such 
stars in one 
picture make 
it as conspicu- 
ous in its field 
as the Levia- 
than is upon 
the ocean. The 
real Hollywood 
at last.

Go-Round" possesses senti- 
ment and charm and there is 
at times a definite poignancy 
about it which brings a 
wistful appeal. We wonder 
what Stroheim would have 
made of it had he been 
allowed to follow it thru to a 
conclusion. His successor, Rupert 
Julian, has brought out some spark- 
ling bits — and at the same time he 
allows himself to be swallowed up in con- 
ventional grooves. 
The tale — really a screen version of "Old Heidelberg" 
— presents a sentimental heartache of a pathetic organ- 
grinder who transforms a playboy into a gentleman who 
respects a young girl's innocence. The scene is Vienna's 
Coney Island — Der Prater, and as she grinds out the 
tunes to the stern commands of the relentless conces- 
sionnaire, well played by George Seigmann, there comes 
into her life a gay lieutenant bedecked in a brilliant 
Austrian uniform. There is some counter-conflict when he 
is married to a lady of royalty, but his charter is born 
upon the battle-field. And he returns home after the con- 
venient death of his wife to lift the girl from drudgery.

under the auspices of Selznick. is a sequel to the other — 
and presents the wily Rupert and his gift at intrigue in 
a conventional s»rt of way. There is nothing about the 
opus to stimulate the imagination — the story being so 
ancient and obvious. But at least it is done ever so much 
better than the volume of mythical kingdom stuff which 
reaches the screen.

There is ample room for the star to attempt some

But it was almost 
impossible to see 
Jack ... so wholly 
was he surrounded 
by fair faces, mar- 
celled heads, and an 
aroma compounded 
of the most expen- 
sive scents of Araby 

THE decks of the steamer, warping majestically up 
the harbor, were packed with olive-drab heroes who 
had just finished their job of making the world safe 
for democracy. Sirens and whistles blew piercing blasts 
of welcome from either shore ; the bronze goddess of 
Liberty bestowed a metallic smile of approval upon them 
as they sailed past her ; and all over the broad land the 
mayors of a hundred cities worked feverishly upon 
Addresses of Welcome. 

Somewhat apart from his fellows stood a young man 
with a square chin and a spunky grin that tried to deny 
the wistfulness in his very blue-blue eyes. Seven million 
people in Manhattan — and not one of them would be glad 
to see him back ! He wished humorously that he had 
elected to return by way of Boston where there would 
have been only two million and a half people who wouldn't 
have been glad to see him ! The sole relative Jack Dunbar 
had in the world was a small brother whom he had 
parked on a farm in the Middle West when a gentleman 
by the name of Wilhelm had started something he couldn't 
finish several years before. There was not even a mayor 
to shed oratorical tears over him, for he was a rolling 
stone, and in his pockets at this moment jingled not a 
particle of moss. 

*'If I'm going to keep up the habit of eating I've got 
into," Jack reflected, "I've got to get a job, and I have a 

sneaking notion that the guys that heroically gave their 
voices for their country yelling 'hooray !' when we 
marched away are going to get writer's cramp when it 
comes to putting us on their pay-rolls now !" 

'The mountain ranges of sky-scrapers gave way to docks 
and huge electric signs advertising the virtues of pills, 
tires and breakfast foods, the tugs grunted and panted 
as they nosed their charge into dock and one thousand 
nine hundred and ninety-nine relatives and friends surged 
forward crying : "George !" "Peter !" and "Bill !" The 
two thousandth passenger delayed until the others were 
all disembarked, then sauntered down the gang-plank, 
hands jammed into pockets, lips puckered into a gallant 
whistle which changed to a yelp of surprise as a small 
figure catapulted itself from the crowd upon him. 

"Buddy! Why say — and I thought you were in Ohio 
growing up into presidential timber !" 

"I was but I ain't," Buddy replied succinctly, gazing at 
his soldier brother with worshipful eyes, "I stowed on

scared I was going to miss meeting you — the brakeman

"How come you're down here then?" Jack demanded, 
trying to sound gruff and elder brotherly, and failing

"Mrs. Smedley made bully

was always after me to wash, ami besides when a feller

When Jack glimpsed the bill for the pancakes he 

decided that the city was no place for them, an opinion 
that a day's search for a job confirmed. At the close 
of the afternoon he exchanged his soldier uniform for a 
suit of hand-me-downs at the Misfit Clothing Store of 
one Abraham Levy. '*I guess we hit for the tall grass, 
kid. 1 cant do much of anything but I cant do it better 
in the country than in the city. Let's go!" 

The following afternoon found them trudging along a 
road in upper Westchester where fate gave them the 
cue to turn the corner immediately after Mr. Small, multi- 
millionaire, with a prejudice against chauffeurs whirled 
the crank of his imported car for the fifteenth fruitless 
time, accompanying the operation with lurid language 
which even to one 
accustomed to the 
conversation of 
drill sergeants 
was a revelation. 

"I sent my 
daughter out of 
earshot," Mr. 
Small explained 
as Jack and 
Buddy paused en- 
tranced to harken, 
"this is the fifth 
time this after- 
noon she has had to 
take a walk in the 
fields while I got

"It wasn't any t hing," 

said lack modestly, shaking 

his head at the proffi 

bill, "anybody could have 
told you what to do." 

Mr. Small returned the 
bill to his pocket reluctantly. "Then, if you wont let 
me repay you with money, young man." he said, "here 
million dollars' worth of advice. Never tell people some- 
one else is as good a> you are, never be modest. Brag! 
Bluff! Blow your own horn, young man!" 

Jack laughed. "It's no use trying to make people 
think you're something you're not," he declared, "you 
cant get away with it." 

Mr. Small had been watching him closely, now as a 
man overcome by his own humor he burst into immoder- 
ate laughter from which words trickled: " — be a g 
joke — that old snob Jolyon! And Mrs. Yates would hurl 
Julia at your head — and Dinsmore Bevan. ha, ha, ha!" 
Gradually he became more coherent: "Say. I like to 
prove my theories and I can afford to do as I like. I'll 
give you one hundred dollars to impersonate a millionaire 
at a house-party I'm on my way to now." 

Here is a part of the amazing house-party: the rich Mr. Small and his daughter Ann, the 
finicky financier, Bevan. the ambitious (unduly) widow, Mrs. Yates 




Rapidly he unfolded his scheme which included a 
mythical Rolls-Royce supposedly wrecked, forcing Jack 
and Buddy to don borrowed clothes, with a Texas oil 
well in the hackground — to explain, Jack judged cynically, 
any solecisms of speech or ignorance of the proper fork 
for the fish course. 

He had already opened his mouth to disclaim any 
interest in the preposterous plan, but no words came. 
Lips still ajar, he was gazing beyond the baldish head of 
the whimsical millionaire at a vision in cool summer 
colors who had just appeared strolling thru the grove. 
"Is it safe to come now, Papa?" asked the Vision, smil- 
ing cherry-lipped, "a few little damns wont matter." 

Jack bowed, gracefully from the hips as he had seen 
the Frenchmen bow, and turned to Mr. Small whose pursy 
figure seemed surrounded with a glow of reflected radi- 
ance. "I agree to your proposition — on one condition," 
he said suavely, "'and that is that the scheme be confi- 
dential for one week, no matter what occurs." 

"You have my word for it !" the millionaire chuckled. 

"Then," Jack deftly slipped a card into the other's 
hand, "wont you begin by introducing me to your 
daughter? And explain how my car was wrecked so that 
my brother and I are forced to make such a poor 

The chuckle exploded. Mr. Small's expression as he 
complied with Jack's request was dubious like that of a 
man who doesn't quite see the point of a joke. And 
when, a little later, he stood by and watched the members 
of the Jolyon's house-party vie with one another to make 
the handsome young Texas oil magnate welcome, his 
dubiousness was that of a man who has walked confi- 
dently off an unsuspected step in the dark. 

P' 1 ' 

"Isn't Mr. Dunbar a dear?" gushed Mrs. Yates, a 
stout widow with a cattish tongue, kittenish ways, and a 
daughter of more than marriageable age, as she glanced 
across the table at dinner, "wasn't it fortunate Mr. Bevan 
is the same size and could lend him clothes and my little 
Percy's things just fit that sweet child Buddy! What a 
romantic chance that brought him to us here — it is almost 
enough to make one believe in Fate isn't it, Mr. Small?" 
Across the silver centerpiece her neighbor watched the 
debonair figure of his creation -dividing his smiles between 
unattractive Julia Yates and his own daughter, Ann, 
while on the other side. of Ann, quite isolated by an inat- 
tentive, charming bare shoulder. Augustus Jolyon, the 
son of the host, partook dreamily and in solitude of his 
alligator pear salad. Augustus had neither parlor graces 
nor shekels, but he did possess ancestors. His blood 
was blue, which no doubt accounted for the bleak pallor 
of his complexion, and his features were all inherited 
from a long line of forebears which was probably the 
reason for their being so curiously assorted. It was a 
matter of understanding between Ann's father and 
Augustus' parents that their children should marry, and 
Ann had been apparently resigned if not enthusiastic 
when they started out for the house-party. 

Mr. Small had always rather fancied himself as a 
practical joker, but now he began to wonder whether he 
had not been an extremely impractical one. If only he 
had not given that idiotic promise of one week's silence ! 
He would see that young upstart after dinner and put 
him in his place. 

But it was almost impossible to see Jack after dinner 
when the party had returned to the drawing-room, so 
wholly was he surrounded by fair faces, marcelled heads 

and an aroma 
compounded of the 
most expensive 
scents of Araby. 
Fuming inwardly. 
Mr. Small watched 
Mrs. Yates coo 
over him, watched 
the slightly shop- 
worn Julia ply him 
with flattery, 
watched his own 
daughter. Ann, ac- 
tually blush in a 
Mid- Victorian 
manner at some- 
thing the shameless 
young scoundrel 
whispered to her — 
Ann who read 
Shaw and Wells 
and was wont to 
discuss sex inhibi- 
tions and birth 
control with 
her young me n 
friends ! 

Mr. Small cast a 
glance about for 
Augustus who, as 
prospective hus- 

Bcvan shook his 
head: "Not practi- 
cal, my boy! Sorry 
but I am not inter- 
ested in portable 
Niagaras. Why dont 
you try our friend 
from Texas?" 



Percy and Buddy doing their share toward making the house-party even more interesting 

band, should by right be a prey to the green-eyed monster, 
but that pallid youth had cornered Dinsmore Bevan and 
was explaining his invention of a device for the wireless 
transmission of power to the skeptical financier. ' . . . 
millions in it !" he was saying, "think of it, the power of 
a Niagara in your own home by pressing a button I" 

Bevan shook his head. "Not practical, my boy!'' his 
tone patted Augustus indulgently on the head, 
"sorry, but I'm not interested in portable 
Niagaras. Why dont you try our friend 
from Texas?" His gesture told 
Augustus to be a good boy and 
run away and play, but the 
young inventor took his de- 
risive suggestion seriously. A 
gleam of hope came into 
the pale, near-sighted eyes 
he had inherited from 
some maternal uncle, he 
set his great-grand- 
father's rather weak 
chin determinedly and 
a moment later had 

Mr. Small sought 
his host. "Jolyon.'' 
said he, "have you 
spoken to your boy 
about the matter we 
discussed the other day? 
What did he say?" 

Mr. Jolyon shrugged 
his shoulders. "To be quite 
frank," he admitted, "Au- 
gustus did not take to the 
idea just at first. His remark 
was, as I remember, something 
to the effect that he didn't want 
any wife because she would be sure 
to get hair pins into his transmitter, 
and powder onto his batteries, but I rt- 


another cor- 
istening to his 

minded him that marriage was a family custom of our-. 
and he finally yielded." 

"As a wooer," said Mr. Small dryly, "Augustus is not 
exactly ardent. However I cannot say that Ann is pre- 
cisely sentimental herself, altho she has agreed to my 
wishes. I think under the circumstances," his glance 
wandered toward Jack, "we would be wise to announce 
the engagement at once." 

Ann Small smiled a trifle grimly intc 
Augustus' downcast face as they took 
their places side by side. "It hurts 
me as badly as it does you. Gus !" 
she said, "still, dont you think it 
would be the sporty thing to 
register pleasure instead of 
looking as if the body was 
still in the next room?" 
Jack Dunbar was in the 
act of signing his name 
when the announcement 
of the engagement was 
made. The result wa- 
a large, heart-broken 
blot but he pressed 
Augustus' hand warm- 
ly in congratulation. 
"May I be the fir 
he said, "to Wish my 
partner happiru 
"Partner," cried Small 
and Jolyon in chorus 
while Ann 
"Why, yes," Jack ex- 
plained, "Augustus has 
told me of his invention 
and I think with my knowl- 
edge of wireless we can make 
a big thing of it. He has of- 
fered me a half-interest, and Mr. 
Bevan here has just purchased my 
interest for fifty thousand dollars," and

George Walsh has forsaken athletics for 
aesthetics. In his new picture for Goldwyn, 
"The Magic Skin," he is cast as a dreamer 
and a poet starving in his garret. It is 
said that George actually starved himself 
for weeks before this picture so that he 
might acquire that yearning, aesthetic look. 
We find this poetic glamour becoming and 
we marvel anew at the versatility of these 
movie stars. The little girl on the stairs 
gazing so admiringly upward, is Bessie

BEFORE I ever write again about a happy Holly- 
wood bride, I am going to make her bring her 
husband by the hand and file him for reference. 
All of which anguished cry arises from the case of 
Renee Adoree. It appears that while we were all 
dripping fond and happy tears over her domestic bliss, 
she was burning midnight oil in the manufacture of 
a burning suit for divorce. And the suit for divorce 
was filed the other day. In it she accused her hubby, 
Tom Moore, of cruelty. She said he accused her of 

having a "past" ; 
of calling her 
mean names. So 
there's another 
young illusion 

The lovely 
Renee can doubt- 
less find some 
consolation in the 
fact that she has 
made the greatest 
sensation of any 
girl in Hollywood 
this year. She is 
regarded as the 
greatest "find" of 
many seasons as 
an emotional 

All of which 

Photograph by Clarence S. Bull brings US to the 

case of Mabel 
Normand. I attended a luncheon one day 
last week at the Writers' Club, at which the 
topic was brought up of screen genius. 
The writers and directors who were there 
all agreed that the greatest single genius 
that has ever been produced by the screen 
is Mabel Normand and that some day she 
is likely to tear loose and produce some- 
thing that will be immortal in screen 

For the first time in her life, Mabel 
has really been in earnest over a pic- 
ture. Until this one, she has been the 
despair and agony of her directors' 
lives. They would get all set to 
"shoot" and perhaps the star would 
appear ; and perhaps the star would 
not. Also the star was just as likely 
as not to go to lunch on an important 
day and not appear for four days. 

But, while the "Extra Girl" was in 
the making at the Sennett Studio, a 
new Mabel made her appearance — a 
grave, reliable and punctual Mabel. 
The explanation probably is that 
Mabel is very hard pressed finan-. 
cially and realizes she has to get busy 
and saw wood. Some of her invest- 
ments have gone wrong.

By the time this appears in print, Mary 
Picktord's keepsakes will be distributed 
among the loving families of Hollywood. 
Mary presented Rev. Xeal Dodd, the 
"chaplain of Hollywood," with a whole trunk 
filled with stuff to be auctioned off for the 
benefit of his church. Among other 
treasures was the little velvet suit she 
wore in "Lord Fauntleroy" ; her lace 
handkerchief which she used in "The 
Street Singer." etc. There were 
slippers and scarfs and all manner 
of wearing apparel. 

Speaking of Mary, they say her 
studio speaks in hushed whispers of 
the awful indignity that has occurred. 
This young girl, Lucile Rickson, who 
is announced by Marshall Neilan as 
the rising genius of the age, is to be 
in Jack Pickford's next picture and 
she is to take the part that Mary her- 
self had in a previous version of the 
story. Instead of being properly im- 
pressed, Miss Rickson accepted the 
situation with such sang-froid that 
she began to call Mary "old dear"

And as to Mary. . . . One day last week, 
one of the Los Angeles newspapers published a 
symposium of opinions from well-known citi- 
zens, mostly bank presidents and such, about 
what policy the city should pursue in its indus- 
trial future, etc. Among those quoted was Mary 
Pickford. Mary offered a plan of such sane, 
sagacious reasoning, such breadth of vision and 
withal of such practical and feasible value, that

Whether from policy or because 
the Hollywood sunshine has 
softened her heart, the lovely Pola 
Negri has changed her methods. 
Gone is the old hauteur. She loves 
everybody now. She says "My

is the finest actor she has seen in 
America and that Herbert Bren-

ever worked with. But she says, hereafter, she is going 
to do her acting in her own way and not let anybody 
bamboozle her into the idea that Americans demand 
restraint in acting. Not to be outdone by Mary 
Pickford's version of the same story, Pola's picture. 
"The Spanish Dancer," will have some of the most 
gorgeous sets ever seen in motion pictures.

they used to say "Howd' do" ; but now they say 
"Hello-o-o-o-o." When Nazimova does, it sounds very 
spiffy and cultured but when the others try it, it sounds

-Ihe new liquid polish 

A polish that will not form lumps and 
gummy ridges on the nails. That spreads 
smoothly mi<1 evenlj all over the nail. It 
is tinted |iist the shade that fashionable 
women are using this season. 

Every requirement tor a liquid polish 
was considered when Cutex was working 
out this formula. The new Cutex Liquid 
Polish dries almost instantly. Before you 
hue finished the second nail the first is so 
drv and firm, touching will not mar it. It 
will not peel off, nor crack. Its brilliant 
even lustre lasts a whole week. 

And finally, it needs no separate polish 
remover. When you are ready for a fresh 
manicure you just put on a fresh coat of 
Liquid Polish, one nail at a time, wiping it 
off instantly before it dries. This leaves 
your nails smooth and clean, ready for the 
fresh manicure. 

You can get Cutex Liquid Polish for 35c 
or in the $1.00 and #3.00 sets. Sets with 
other polishes are 60c and $1.50.

The Happy Hour 

Posed by Johnnie Walker and Mildred June in "The Worm" 

MB. — This charming tho innocuous portrait was substituted at the last minute 
fora page of burning kisses from "Alimony," because, forsooth, it caused both a 
managerial and an art department blush! 


(^y{ow do they accomplish it ? 

The women who give their skin the hardest wear 
manage to keep their races young long after 
other women have grown old and unattractive. 

THE actress gives lie r complexion harder wear and demands 
more of it in return than any other woman. She must keep 
her skin tine and clear though she covers it with cosmetics. It 
must he fresh in spite of late, weary hours. 

How does she accomplish this? By careful study of her skin 
she has discovered the two indispensable things it needs to keep 
it in the fresh, heautifully supple condition she demands. 

First the perfect kind of cleansing at night that leaves the 
face soft and clear — every bit of dirt, every trace of cosmetic. 
every shadow of weariness taken away. Then the exquisite 
morning freshening that keeps the skin flower- like through th< 
dav and guards it completely from every coarsening thing. 

These are the two fundamentals of skin loveliness. For these 
two things many well-known actresses depend on the two en- 
tirely different creams that Pond's developed especially for this 
method of keeping a woman's skin young and fresh — Pond's 
Cold Cream and Pond's Vanishing Cream. And many other 
women write enthusiastically about the smoothness these creams 
give their skin. 

See what this famous method will do for you 

Do this every night. With the finger tips or a piece of 
moistened cotton, apply Pond's Cold Cream freely. The very 
fine oil in it penetrates every pore of your skin. Then wipe it 
off with a soft cloth. Dirt and excess oil, the rouge and powder 
you have used during the day are taken off your skin and out 
of the pores. Do this twice. Your skin looks fresh and is 
beautifully supple. 

And every morning, smooth on Pond's Vanishing Cream 
evenly. If you wish, rouge — powder. How smooth and 
velvety your face feels to your hand ! Nothing can roughen it. 
And it will stay that way all day. 

To see how Pond's two creams actually improve your skin, 
use this method regularly. Buy both creams today in jars or 
tubes. The Pond's Extract Company. 

Mae Murray, one of the most allur- 
ing of screen itart, says, I have 
found that Pond's Two Creams give 
the complexion a lovely freshness and 
smoothness . " 

Charming Peggy Wood says, 
"Pond's Cold Cream cleanses easily 
and leaves my skin feeling fresh. 
Then the I/anishtng Cream u a love- 
ly smooth base for powder. 

I'hitto hu Edward Thaifr Monro* 

Every skin needs these Two Creams — The 
Cold Cream for cleansing. The Vanishing 
Cream to protect and to hold the powder 

The common troubles that make a woman's skin look 
older — Pond's two creams banish them 

Accumulation of oil and dirt in the pores. For this condition 
cleanse every night with Pond's Cold Cream, which is so light 
it penetrates the glands and takes out excess oil and dirt together. 
Then every morning put on Pond's Vanishing Cream to keep 
your face fresh through the day. 

Premature wrinkles, scaling, dry shine — are especially the 
troubles of a dry skin. To avoid them, keep your skin soft day 
and night. Cleanse with plenty of Pond's Cold Cream nightly 
and keep some on over night. Feel your skin relax. Then by 
day Pond's Vanishing Cream prevents your skin from drying 
out again. 

Coarsening Sun and Windhurn. The daily repetition of 
weather damage ages your skin. For everyday exposure, use 
faithfully the nightly Pond's Cold Cream cleansing and in the 
day the delicate yet sure protection that Pond's Vanishing 
Cream gives.

Beauty at Your Finger Tips 

TODAY, as the possibilities of intelli- 
gent care of the skin are becoming 
more generally realized, it is literally true thousands upon thousands of women 
are growing younger in looks, and likewise 
in spirits. 

The secret of restoring and retaining a 
youthful complexion lies chiefly in the 
faithful and well-directed use of the proper 
sorts of face creams. The constant employ- 
ment of creams by actresses in removing 
make-up is largely responsible for the clear- 
ness and smoothness of their skins. 

First, the beautiful skin must be clean, 
with a cleanliness more thorough than is 
a t tain able by mere soap-and-water washing. 
The pores must be cleansed to the same 
depth that they absorb. This is one of the 
functions of Pompeian Night Cream. It 
penetrates sufficiently to reach the em- 
bedded dust. Its consistency causes it to 
mingle with the natural oil of the pores, 
and so to bring out all foreign matter 
easily and without irritation to the tissues. 

The beautiful skin must be soft, with 
plastic muscles and good blood-circulation 

beneath. A dry, tight skin cannot have the 
coveted peachblow appearance; set muscles 
make furrows; poor circulation causes pale- 
ness and sallowness. 

Pompeian Night Cream provides the 
necessary skin-softening medium to skins 
that lack the normal degree of oil satu- 
ration. Gentle massaging with it flexes the 
facial muscles, stimulates the blood circu- 
lation, and tones up all the facial tissues. 

Upon retiring, first use Pompeian Night 
Cream as a cleanser; apply with the fingers 
and then wipe off with a soft cloth, freeing 
the pores of all the day's accumulated dust 
and dirt. Afterward apply the cream to 
nourish the skin, leaving it on over night. 
The faithful following of this simple 
treatment works wonders in the skin- 
removing roughness, redness, and black- 
heads, and warding off wrinkles, flabbiness, 
and sallowness. It is the most approved 
treatment for restoring and retaining a 
youthful complexion.

What tha-l*- fare powdrl WW '• 

(Sirty-~ntnt> ) 



Elsie Baby. — Great things often result from little words of 
encouragement. Here's my hand, shake ! Yes, Ramon Navarro. 
Address the players you mention at Famous Players-Lasky, 1520 
Vine Street, Los Angeles, Cal. 

Vera W. — Yes, those were real tears ; tears the silent language 
of grief. Address Rod LaRocque at Famous Players, address above. 

I. C. H. Little Rock. — Thanks for all the kind things you 
say about this department. You say love is a bird that sings 
in the heart of a woman. Yes, and some men are birds too. 
Address Dagmar Godowsky, care of Frank Mayo, Goldwyn, 
Culver City, Cal. Write me again. 

Majorie, Cal. — Well, you cant expect perfection all the time. 

Yes, and there will always remain something to be said of 

.woman, so long as there is one on the earth. Barbara La Marr 

is to have the lead in "Damned." Yes, Joseph Schildkraut is to 

play opposite Norma Talmadge in "Dust of Desire." 

Edith P. — Come again Edith. 

Sinclaire III. — Sounds like the name of a boat or something. 
I love these letters starting in "Several years ago I saw" and then 
to go on describing the picture. I'm sorry, my cljild, but ' I 
cannot tell you the name of the picture you describe. I'm more 
sorry than you are. Mrs. Wallace Reid is twenty-eight. 
Better luck next time. 

Brown Eyes. — You cant quarrel with me, my lady, it takes 
two indiscreet individuals to make a quarrel and I shall not be 
one of them. Yes, Malcolm McGregor is married, and his last 
picture was "The Social Code" with Viola Dana. Rodolph Val- 
entino expects to play in Ritz-Carlton Pictures, which he will 
start when his contract ends with Famous Players. No I dont 
mind answering questions. I wouldn't be able to draw my 
salary if I didn't answer questions. 

Box 2576. — You neglected your John Hancock. I should say 
Dorothy Dalton is still living, but not married. Playing in "Leah 
Kreschna." Well, if you have a good library in your town you 
have a university. Why Edith Roberts and Taylor Holmes will 
play with George Arliss in "The Adopted Father." 

Marie S. — No your letter didn't give me a headache, thanks 
for the aspirin, however. That's what I call foresight. Thanks 
for your generosity, but I would rather you wouldn't send the 
cow. It would be a bit inconvenient in my hallroom. I'm 
quite able to get buttermilk at the dairy. I dont think Valentino 
has a brother, and I dont see how I can help you get into pictures. 
Come in again some time. 

Tex. — Dont forget that it is awfully easy to be critical, but 
awfully hard to be correct. Madge Bellamy was born in Waco, 
Texas. Katherine MacDonald is twenty-eight and Madge Evans 

Carol F. Detroit. — There are very few successful gamblers 
in the world ; and they are failures in everything else. Most com- 
panies are buying stage plays for motion-picture production. I 
wouldn't know who to tell you to write to. If other's purses 
be more fat, why should we groan and grieve at that. I'm happy 
with my $10.50 per. 

Miss Proxide. — You cannot ex- 
pect everlasting happiness in this 
world. Happiness, like the blue of 
the sky, cannot always last, for as 
the earth needs rain, to yield its 
fruits, so man needs tears to 
estimate life at its true value. Wil- 
liam Farnum is married to Oliva 
White. So you would like to meet 
Richard Dix. Address Gloria 
Swanson at Famous Players. Mar- 
guerite Courtot is in New York. 
Her last picture was "The Stead- 
fast Heart." Well, she has recently 
married Raymond McKee. 

Ruthie. — Of course I sleep on

a bed, did you think I slept on the piano? The Ancients slept 
on skins. Beds were afterwards of loose rushes, heather or straw. 
The Romans are said to have been the first to use feathers. 
An air cushion is said to have been used by Heliogabalus, 218-222 
A. D., and air beds were used in the sixteenth century. Feather beds 
were used in England in the reign of Henry VIII. The bed- 
steads of the Egyptians and later Greeks, like modern couches, 
became common among the Roman upper classes. Enough of that. 
No, Richard Dix is not married. Tom Mix is married to Vic- 
toria Forde. Yes, she used to play in Western pictures years ago. 
Thanks for your good wishes. 

Martin. — It is like playing ping-pong with a medicine-ball to 
answer questions like yours in this department. This is no 
place for essays. To answer your questions the way I want to, 
would take two or three pages. Yes, Glora Swanson is playing 
in "Zaza" and you can reach her at Famous Players. Antonio 
Moreno has played in "My American Wife." "The Exciters" 
and next in "The Spanish Dancer." 

Box 2576. — What again ? I'm afraid you will ■ have to try 
that job yourself. Madge Kennedy has started her second pic- 
ture, "Beyond the Salt Frontier" for Kenma. Neysa McMein 
wrote the story, and Anita Loos and John Emerson put it in 
scenario form. That's it, courage counts. 

Miss Dorothy. — Well, if you love life, dont squander time, 
for that is the stuff life is made of. Ivor Novello is twenty- 
four ; Kenneth Harlan twenty-eight and Conrad Nagel twenty- 
seven. Vivian Martin is on the stage and Justine Johnson is in 
Europe. Constance Binney has just signed a contract with C. C. 
Burr and she will play in "Clipped Wings." Katherine 
MacDonald's last was "The Scarlet Lily." 

A Navarro Fan. — I wish I could help you, but the greatest 
pleasure of life is love. You will have to take your own choice, 
the question was — which is the better at kissing, Rodolph Val- 
entino or Ramon Navarro. Your drawing was good, but it bears 
not the slightest resemblance. 

Wanda R. — No, I dont care whether you write on your 
mother's paper or not. Norma Talmadge's "Ashes of Vengeance" 
is to be shown at the Carnavolet Museum in the Paris, as well 
as at the Apollo Theater in New York, for an indefinite run. 
Yes, Mary Pickford's last is "Rosita." 

Leona W. — Insurance is an effort to discount death and des- 
tiny. Build up your own insurance surplus by right living, simple 
eating and plenty of sleep and exercise. You'll find too, that your 
enjoyment of things takes less force with good health and spirits 
back of you. May Murray has blue eyes, and blonde hair. Yes, 
she used to dance in New York. Yes, Alice Terry wears a blonde 
wig in pictures. 

Betty C. Swampscott. — No, I have no record of the present 
whereabouts of Betty Carpenter. William Collier, Jr. was the 
hero in "Cardigan." 

Aleen. — Well if you fight, fight for honor, glory or money, 
whichever you are most in need of. May Murray is married to 

Robert Leonard, her director. No, 
Eugene O'Brien has never been 

Lenore. — How about this for 
speed? You refer to Robert Frazer 
in your first and Eddie Burns as 
Buddy. Frances Ring is Mrs. 
Thomas Meighan. 

Sarie. — Yes, I believe there will 
always be wars. Tearing down the 
work of ages and building up anew 
cannot be accomplished without 
tremendous shock. Robespierre, 
Danton, and Marat tore down and 
Napoleon built up. The shock that 
split Europe wide open and shook

interesting story of its 

We are apt to take 
the most marvelous 
discoveries of this age 
as a matter of fact — 
even one of such im- 
portance to the realm 
of beauty as a tint that 
is a perfect match for 
Nature's own artistry ! 
Suddenly science 
gives the world of 
women a tint which 
tinges the cheeks in such a true 
tone as the very strongest sun's 
rays, or the weirdest effects of 
night lighting cannot separate 
from the underlying flesh tone, 
and we accept it without thought 
of how it came to be. 
Yet behind the simple, 
single tint which gives 
any and all complex- 
ions a divine and per- 
fectly natural mantle 
of color is the story of 
man's indomitable 
perseverance — two 
years' ceaseless ex- 
periment — over two 
hundred failures, and 
eventual success. 

The search for the 
perfect tint led a digni-

in which old-fashioned rouges all 
became the same ghastly, or un-

Scarcely a color to try 
on the cheeks! But he idly applied 
it on his assistant's cheeks — and a 
startling change took place. The 
peculiar orange tint altered in- 
stantly to the true tone of the skin 
beneath! Still doubtful that he 

had found (he one key tint for 
any complexion under all 
conditions— in every light — 
they hurried to the rod and 
put the new tint to the severe

day, preparations 
were started to supply 
the demand that such 
a discovery was cer- 
tain to create. Now, 
this new Princess Pat

standard use.

is worn without concern the day long, or

These groups of stockholders illustrate the rapid growth in ownership of the Bell System. 

A Community of Owners Nation-wide 

"Who owns the company?" 
"What is behind it?" These 
questions are asked in apprais- 
ing the soundness of a business 
and in determining its aims. 

The American Telephone 
and Telegraph Company is 
owned by more than 270,000 
people living in every state in 
the Union. Could the stock- 
holders of the Bell System be 
gathered to one place, they 
would equal the population of 
a city about the size of Provi- 
dence or Denver. 

They constitute a representa- 
tive cross-section of American 
citizenship. Among them, of 
course, are bankers and men of 
large affairs; for the idea of 

ownership in the Bell System 
appeals to sound business judg- 
ment and a trained sense of 

In this community of owners 
are the average man and woman, 
the storekeeper, the clerk, the 
salesman, the professional man, 
the farmer and the housewife — 
users of the telephone who with 
their savings have purchased a 
share in its ownership. The 
average individual holding is 
but twenty-six shares. 

No institution is more popu- 
larly owned than the Bell 
System, none has its shares dis- 
tributed more widely. In the 
truest sense it is owned by those 
it serves.

Ashes of Vengeance 

{Continued from page 31) 

Then my noble lister went straight 
way to our brother Charles and be- 
spoke Rupert's freedom. So elo- 
quently did she plead his cause that 
Charles was moved to absolve him 
from his oath of service and said so, 
right magnanimously. 

Rupert was surprised and gratified, 
yet hurt. He was sure now that 
Yoeland did not care for him, since 
they were allowing him to go away. 
Incredible to say, he did not now want 
his freedom. I was heart-broken and 
wept grievously for hours. Yoeland. 
the haughty, cried too and when I 
saw her tears I marveled at them. 

I am sure I do not know how it 
would have ended if she had not 
broken down when Rupert came to 
bid her farewell. Slowly the realiza- 
tion dawned on him and such amazed 
delight blazed in his eyes that had I 
been looking into them instead of 
Yoeland, I should have been blinded. 

"Yoeland," he murmured, "Yoe- 
land, my beautiful," and took her in 
his arms and kissed her on the lips. 

I turned my head away. It \va> 
too great ecstasy for me to see. 

They are to be married within a 
fortnight and so that ends the feud. 
For neither Charles nor Rupert dare 
fall under the displeasure of My 
Lady Yoeland. That would be too 
grave a risk, as both of them love 
her too well. 

And now the story is ended — or 
rather just begun. The two lights 
of night and day shine soft across 
the castle walls, making long shadows 
on the grass, and I am very tired, 
but oh, so happy.

Alma: But what does it all 
amount to, after all? What does it 
get you ? Where does it get you ? 
A little money, easily spent. A little 
fame, easily forgotten. A little tem- 
porary glory. An illusion. While 
your youth lasts, or your good looks

Reduces 53 Lbs* in Nine Weeks! 

Society Leader Takes Off Every Pound of 

Excess Weight— From 191 Lbs. to 138 Lbs. 

Mrs. Bayliss Tells the Way She Did It 

NKVER dreamed 
you could do it 
Mr. Wallace," 
wrote this well 
known young 
matron of Phila- 
delphia's social 
elect Her letter 
is dated in Febru- 
ary, and refers to 
reducing records 
WALLACE purchased late in 

November. A reduction of more than 
fifty pounds in three months! But read 
her own story: 

"Here I am, back to 138 lbs. after 
my avoirdupois had hovered around the 
impossible two-hundred mark! Your 
perfectly wonderful music movements — 
nothing else — did it. You have reduced 
my weight from 191 to 138, and light- 
ened my heart as no one can know who 
has not had activities and enjoymentscur- 
tailed for years — and suddenly restored. 
"Thanks to Wallace I am dancing, 
golfing and 'g om s' as oi yore. Best of 
all, I am back in 
the saddle. Because 
I once laughed at 
the idea of getting 
thin to music' 1 
offer in humble 
apology this letter, 
my photograph and 
permission to pub- 
lish them should 
you desire. 

Very sincerely yours, 

Jessica Penrose Bayliss." 

How It Was Done 

Most women of bulky figure would 
make almost any sacrifice to attain the 
symmetry Mrs. Bayliss' photo reveals. 
But you need not sacrifice your health, 
comfort, or even convenience. The 
process is enjoyable. You use Wallace's 
records but ten minutes a day! Yet the 
reduction is felt within five days of 
starting; the second week will bring a 
noticeable improvement; the third or 
fourth week will find you lighter by 
many pounds. 

The beauty of Wallace's method is 
its absolutely natural reduction, and 
redistribution of weight. Unlike the drastic 
dieting and drugging methods, there is 
no loss of flesh where you cannot afford 
to lose it. 

Observe the photograph ; do you see 
any suggestion of gauntness in face or

only excess flesh. 

There Is No Need of Starving or 
Otherwise Punishing Yourself 

Scores of society women have re- 
duced by this now famous course in 
reducing, Many of them wouH never 
have done so had it required thv stren- 
uous and tedious effort and self-denial 
once thought to be the only means of 
defeating superfluous flesh. ' It is down- 
right fun" is what most folks say, from 
the first day they take up this exhilara- 
ting form of reducing. 

It is easy to get thin to music — and 
extremely easy to prove that you can. 
The first reducing record awaits only 
your word that you want it. Try it only 
five days — and note the result in even 
this short time. 

Almost a Pound a Day 

In the case here recorded, the reduc- 
tion averaged almost a pound a day. 
Much depends on 
the individual con- 
stitution; for reduc- 
ing in this natural 
manner takes place 
only as fast as the 
system is prepared 
for thechange. Some 
lose seven or eight 
pounds in the first 
five-days test period; 
others but two or three. But you can 
and will reduce to normalcy if you want 
to; whether you are only five pounds 
too heavy, or fifty. 

Consult the table of weights printed 
above ; see just how much you are over 
the weight that is best for your health 
and appearance. Then make up your 
mind that you will weigh what you 
should; you can, very easily — and very 
quickly, if you send for the first reduc- 
ing record and make the start. 

Free Proof — Send No Money _ 

Just try Wallace's way for one week. 
That's all he asks. Don't send any 
money; don't promise to pay anything 
now or later. The trial is free. If you 
don't see surprising results in even these 
few days— simply mail back the record 
and you will not owe Wallace a penny. 
Let the scales decide. Here is the cou- 
pon that brings everything; can anyone 
suffering from overweight decline such 
an invitation?

of the Scenario 

(Continued from page 34) 

before it is accepted. First, it is read, 
then passed on to the considering 
office, where it is criticized before 
reaching the scenario department. 
There the actual changes are made, 
and it is sent to the continuity writer ; 
after this, it is placed in the director's 
hands. His point of view is often 
biased by the subject, which may be 
about a nation or a class whose man- 
ners and customs he knows nothing 
about ! The director changes things 
pretty much as he wishes, as does the 
advisory committee. Then of course 
there is the star of the production, 
who must have his or her little altera- 
tions. When all this is done, the cen- 
sorship committee awaits what is left 
of a once original story. And there 
you are ! Or rather, there your once 
beautiful story isn't! 

"The actual meaning of your idea? 
Alas, it no longer exists ! Supposing 
your story is of a man who stumbled 
out of a window. Have it by acci- 
dent or otherwise, as you will. You. 
as the author, had a definite reason 
for this to happen. And, having 
your reason, had doubtless, a logical 
result, as it affected the man who 
tumbled, and also as it modified the 
lives of those with whom he was con- 
nected. You worked out the psy- 
chology, the consequences of every- 
thing in your story ; these, and other 
parts were the very life of it. Life? 

"When the average motion picture 
scenario department finishes with 
your creation, it has been robbed of 
all which could make it convincing. 
All the well-planned logic and true 
psychology is gone, deleted. Your 
man and his tragic tumble have be- 
come perhaps even the comic adven- 
ture of a person who now evidently 
bears no plausible relation to any- 
thing in your story. 

"And you ? You have been made a 
fool of, because the picture play that 
cannot but insult the intelligence of 
the public, is brought out under your 
name ! I believe, from what I have 
observed, that the American public is 
quite the most understanding in the 
world. It is therefore no small 
prejudice that you have aroused 
against you, as the author. You are 
guilty of offering 'bunk,' something 
that all the checks in the world would 
not have enticed from your pen, in 
the beginning. 

"As I have been away from 
America for nearly a year I have not 
seen the most recent pictures. But 
I have been studying motion pictures 
in England, Germany, Sweden, and 
France. And truly, from the techni- 

( Seventy-eight) 

cal end of tiling, the \m< i ican pro 
duccrs ha\ i no rivals ! In the techni- 
cal side ft picture making the) are 

"Most of the scenarios oi the 
Swedish and German productions arc 
vague; yet they are stories of quality. 
They give forth something tangible tti 
the educated mind. This is where the 
American producer falls down. 

"Imagine the gross insult of a pic 
ture that depicts American social life, 
ociety drama wherein the people 
acl as no man or woman in any conn 
try, in this particular stratum of life 
would act. That's what we have to 
look at all the time. And the public 
will never be given dramas of real 
life as long as ignorant people are 
permitted to have power to produce 
and direet pictures. We must have 
people in authority in the scenario 
departments who know from the in- 
side the phases of life which they are 
trying to interpret. We must have 
people who keep to the things they 
know ! 

"The success of my novels has 
been based upon the fact that I never 
write about things that T do not 
knn7i\ Recently someone asked me 
why T did not write about a certain 
part of England and the natives there. 
'Why-' T asked, somewhat amazed. 
'Recause T only know about them 
thru hearsav. T dont know the reality 
of their existence, and could not write 
until T do.' 

"The scenario departments receive 
many terrible scenarios that have to 
he changed. Naturally, it is hard for 
them to realize when they get a good 
one. which it would be wise for them 
to leave untouched. The diligence 
of the author in mastering movie 
technique will mean everything in the 
final O. K. which he alone should be 
allowed to place on the continuity of 
his picture. TTis knowledge of tech- 
nique will influence producers to 
gather about them intelligent people 
who are not groping in the dark, but 
who, in knowing what they are at- 
tempting to do, will not be satisfied 
until they do it correctly."

use it daily. Accept this ten-day test we 
offer, and learn what it does for you. 

Why teeth lose beauty 

A viscous film clings to the teeth, 
enters crevices and stays. The tooth 
brush alone does not end it. No ordi- 
nary tooth paste effectively combats it. 

So much film remains. Food stains, 
etc., discolor it, then 
it forms dingy coats. 
Tartar is based on 
film. Those cloudy 
coats hide the teeth's 

Film also holds 
food substance 
which ferments and 
forms acid. It holds 
the acid in contact with the teeth to 
cause decay. That's why so few es- 
caped tooth troubles. 

Germs breed by millions in film. 
They, with tartar, are the chief cause 
of pyorrhea. And that became alarm- 
ingly common. 

Better methods now 

Dental science studied long to cor- 
rect this situation. It found two film 

Protect the Enamel 

Pepsodcnt disintegrates the film, 
then removes it with an agent far 
softer than enamel. Never use a 
film combatant which contains 
harsh grit. 

combatants. One of them acts to 
curdle film, one to remove it, and 
without any harmful scouring. 

Able authorities proved these meth- 
ods by many careful tests. Then a 
new-type tooth paste was created, 
based on modern research. In that 
were embodied these two film com- 
batants for daily application. 

That tooth paste is called Pepsodent. 
Leading dentists the world over now 
advise it. Careful people of some 50 
nations are employing it today. 

Multiplies two agents 

Pepsodent does two other things which re- 
search proved essential. 
It multiplies the alka- 
linity of the saliva. That 
is there to neutralize 
mouth acids, the cause ol 
tooth decay. It multi- 
plies the starch digestam 
in the saliva. That is 
there to digest starch de- 
posits which may other- 
wise ferment and form 

Thus every use gives 
manifold power to these

Bringing Great Books 
and Plays to Life 

IN the back of your mind linger the 
memories of mighty deeds and 
throbbing loves — the things that 
make up great books and great plays. 

Upon such stories are Preferred Pic- 
tures built. 

The men who founded Preferred Pic- 
tures believe that no photoplay can 
give the maximum of entertainment; 
no star, no cast, can put forth the 
best that is in them, unless the story 
is right. 

You received the first Preferred Pic- 
tures and proclaimed them a success. 

Now comes "THE VIRGINIAN," 

a Tom Forman Production, made from 
the immortal novel and play. 

Under the spell of color, action and setting 
such as only the moving picture makes pos- 
sible — you can live it yourself with Trampas, 
with Molly, Steve and "The Virginian," the 
greatest western character ever given to lit- 

Kenneth Harlan heads the Preferred Cast, 
which includes such noted actors as Florence

passionate and patient artist-soul. 

But in the movies one does not 
look for the passionate and patient 
artist-soul in a stout Jewish lady of 
forty summers. 

It is preposterous. Out of no slim 
Adonis came the full notes of Ca- 
ruso . . . but in the movies . . . 
p's's't ! Anyone knows that in the 
movies art, Art, mesdames and sires, 
is accompanied by slim, desirous 
bodies, pickfordian curls and nita- 
naldian thighs, come-hither eyes, and 
sixteen fruitful summers. And 
where, in Vera Gordon, were the 
vanished sixteen summers? Where, 
even, were the come-hither eyes?" 
Ah, no, ah, no, to the directors, ever 
searching, ever seeking for the Great 
in Art, Vera Gordon was what she 
might still be to any casual passerby, 
a stoutish Jewish lady asking for a 
part in pictures, pictures, if you 
please ! And so Mrs. Gordon had 
all she could do to get by the keeper 
of the gate, let alone into the rare- 
fied atmosphere of the Casting Di- 
rector's official sanctum. 

And thus, bearing her gift within 
her, guarding it, preserving it with 
the frankincense and myrrh of do- 
mesticity and child-bearing and 
anxiety. Vera Gordon watched the 
long, lean years go by. 

In Russia, when she was thirteen, 
she had played a great mother-role, 
in the Hebrew tongue. Played it so' 
realistically, with such force and 
veracity, that the governor of the 
town or province, or whatever you 
call 'em. issued an order that she 
should be allowed to play in the 
theaters when she chose, an excep- 
tional honor to befall a woman in 
Russia. Later, she married and 
came to Canada, and then followed 
the record of the years between the 
then and now. 

They haven't embittered Vera 
Gordon. If she has a slight con- 
tempt for "the men higher up." who 
mostly dont belong up, it is lost and 
absorbed by her passionate pity and 
love for the great mass of the peo- 
ple, the poor people, whose every day 
is struggle and whose every night a 
new and sad defeat. 

"I know their needs so well, so 
very well." spoke Vera Gordon softly 
and with inescapable understanding. 



beinsr what a novelist 

called his novel. "The Mother of All 
Living." This is the spirit that has 
shone forth and given Vera Gordon 
at long last her "place in the sun."

to boom a man ! But facts speak- 
louder than press agents, and the 
tacts concerning- Adolph Zukor came 
first to a stirring, dramatic climax 
in the anteroom of the General Film 
Company over a decade ago. 

Like Disraeli who foresaw the 
British Empire cemented by r a Suez 
Canal clinching India, years after the 
House of Commons had laughed him 
down — like Disraeli, Zukor waited 
patiently. Three hours passed. He 
was shown in, but he plead in vain. 

The little he had picked up as a 
furrier he had sunk in these nickel- 
odeons of his, hut imposed condi- 
tions were cutting his profit. He had 
vision. He needed money. But what 
he saw, they could not see, what he 
asked they did not grant. They only 
laughed, and suddenly he was on his 
feet, his finger leveled at them, a 
curious hitter smile parting those 
drawn lips of his. 

"Some day," he said, like Disraeli. 
"some day you will hear me. Some 
day you will listen." 

It is convenient to tell the history 
of the motion picture industry in the 
terms of Adolph Zukor, but an in- 
quiry into all the circumstances that 
have entered into that history from 
the day of that interview till now — 
such an inquiry makes telling the

ion, just as thousands of attractive 
women have for more than 30 years. 
Ingram's Milkweed Cream, you will

than a powder base, more than a pro- 
tection for the skin. It has an ex- 
clusive therapeutic property that 
serves to "tone-up" — revitalize — the 
sluggish tissues of the skin. It soothes 
away redness and roughness, ban- 
ishes slight imperfections, heals and 
nourishes the skin cells. No other 
cream is fust like it.

gram's Milkweed 
Cream in either the 

50-cent or $1.00 size. (The dollar jar 
contains three times the quantity.)

have constantly developed about him, 
he has been quick to maneuver him- 
self into positions of advantage, and 
his last, his ablest move, brought him 
that saving grace which — for sim- 
plicity's sake — is known as Will H. 

This was a Machiavellian stroke, 
but its true inwardness seems to be 
understood only in Wall Street finan- 
cial circles where they have followed 
the growth of the picture business to 
its present apex, where they remem- 
ber best the exact manner in which 
the foundations of this pyramid were 
laid down in 1913, '14 and '15. 

Thereabouts the General Film 
Company's hold on the basic patents 
was loosened. Distributing and pro- 
ducing companies sprang up : Mutual. 
Universal, Film Exchanges of 
America, Triangle, Metro, and finally 
Paramount. Able men took charge 
of them : Carl Laemmle, P. A. Pow- 
ers, R. H. Cochrane, H. E. Aitken, 
R. A. Rowland, and finally the com- 
bination that included under the 
Paramount banner such men as 
Zukor, W. W. Hodkinson, Jesse L. 
Lasky, J. D. Williams, Arthur' 
Friend, B. P. Schulberg, and Al 
Lichtman. But what, you will ask, 
was this all about. 

Some flooded pipe-line must have 
poured rich, streaming gold into so 
great a body of activity. 

It did. The stream grew to a river 
when shows were provided worth a 
quarter, half a dollar, a dollar, even 
two dollars. Nickels and dimes were 
all that was asked before. Shows 
had been short then. Half an hour 
of time, two thousand feet of film. It 
was argued that the public would not 
stand for anything longer, that eyes 
couldn't stand the strain. 

One-reelers and two-reelers had 
been supplied by the General Film 
Company at the rate of sixty reels 
a week. Universal broke in with a 
thirty-two-reel program, Mutual with 
twenty-eight, Film Exchanges with 
an inconsiderable eight to twelve. All 
these were short subjects, but before 
the war change was in sight. 

George Kleine, the Republican 
politician from Chicago, was to im- 
port from Italy a picture called "Ju- 
lius Caesar" and pack those anxious 
to see it into a Broadway theater. 

"Quo Vadis," "Cabiria," other? 
followed, but, even before this, ex- 
hibitors clamoring for something to 
keep the crowds coming had seized 
on such few five-reel features as were 
offered and promptly raised their 
prices for "feature days." 

Soon it was evident that the public- 
waited for "feature days," and will- 
ingly paid a quarter for the better 

The five-cent days were over. . . 



Be a Jazz Miisic Master 


New Niagara Method Makes Piano Playing Wonderfully Simple. 

No matter how little you know about music — even though you "have never touched a piano" — if you can 
just remember a tune, you can quickly learn to play by ear. I have perfected an entirely new and simple 
system. It shows you so many little tricks that it just comes natural to pick out on the piano any piece you 
can hum. Beginners and even those who could not learn by the old fashioned method, grasp the Niagara idea 
readily, and follow through the entire course of twenty lessons quickly. Self-instruction — no teacher required. 
You learn many new styles of bass, syncopation, blues, fill-ins, breaks and trick endings. It's all so easy — so 
interesting that you'll be amazed. 

Be Popular in Every Crowd 

One who can sit down at any time without 
notes or music, reel off the latest jazz and 
popular song-hits that entertain folks, 
is always the center of attraction, the 
life of the party, sought after and in- 
vited everywhere. Make yourself the 
center of attraction — master the piano 
by spending an hour a day studying 
the fascinating Niagara Method. 
As easily as thousands of others have 
learned, so you. too. can learn and profit — 
not only through the pleasure it provides, 
but also by playing at dances, motion pic- 
ture houses and other entertainments. 

Decide to Begin Now ! 

Just spend a part of your spare time with a few easy,

Do You Want 
A Better Job? 

THE only difference between success and failure 
is a matter of training. The big men in busi- 
ness today did not reach their present success 
through luck or chance. 

They got into the work for which they were 
best fitted — and then trained themselves to 
know more about their jobs than anyone else. 
When opportunity came — as it always comes — 
these men were ready to grasp it and turn it 
into fame and dollars. 

You have just as good a chance to succeed as these 
men had — perhaps better I Good positions are always 
waiting for trained men — positions that you can get 
if you train yourself to deserve them. 

You can secure this training easily and quickly 
at home through spare-time study with the 
International Correspondence Schools, just as 
so many other men have done. The I. C. S.

Divine Discontent 

(Continued from page 76) 

Alma: P.ut where are there any 
true artists ... on the screen ? 
Who is to say whether they are true 
or not? Where is the celluloid 
Bernhardt ? 

Myself : Non-existent. 

Alma : Exactly. Oh, there are 
touches of genius, I know. I could 
name several. . . . But even so. On 
the other hand, if one can write one 
can defy time, all the time there is. 
Youth can pass and beauty can fade 
and still the gift can remain, one's 
own, independently. 

Myself: What type of writing 
are you doing? 

Alma: Fiction. Short stories. 
Friends of mine, critics, shall I say, 
tell me that my ideas are good, but 
my treatment can be improved upon. 
That's enough encouragement to be- 
gin with. I'm going to keep on try- 
ing. The fact is, that I admire most 
those people, men or women, who 
are able to sacrifice everything, 
fame, comfort, glory, for the sake of 
the thing they want most to do and 
can do the best. I could bow down 
and worship a man or a woman who 
can live in a garret on twenty-five 
cents a day in order to do the thing 
they believe in. That's what dis- 
satisfies me with myself. I have con- 
stantly the feeling that what I am 
doing is impermanent, unimportant 
and soon forgotten. 

Myself : You are probably alone 
in that opinion. -Perhaps the con- 
tinued appreciation of "Enemies of 
Women" will help you to see that. 

Alma: If I could do something 
greater than a mere picture. "Driv- 
en," for instance. Did you see that ? 
There was something tremendous 
and epochal. That was more than a 
mere picture. And yet the man who 
made that has turned to the making 
of "Six Days." Just another movie. 
The pity of that sort of thing is what 
hurts me ; is what gives me this 
poignant dissatisfaction with myself. 

=1= % % 

The conversation went from there 
to other things. Lighter, lesser 
things, and it wasn't until after I 
had left Alma that I thought of what 
I should have said to her . . . which 
was, that this very dissatisfaction and 
restiveness of hers is the tormenting 
fire of genius, the lack of which she 
was lamenting. Hers are the grow- 
ing pains of Art. And when one is 
suffering from growing pains one is 
passing from the adolescence of 
artistry into the maturity that

She Found A Better Way To 
Reduce Her Fat 

She did not have to go to the 
trouble of diet, exercise or unpleas- 
ant greases and salves. She found a 
better way, which aids the digestive 
organs to turn food into muscle, bone 
and sinew instead of fat. 

She used Marmola Prescription 
Tablets, which are made from the 
famous Marmola prescription. They 
aid the digestive system to obtain the 
full nutriment of food. They will allow 
you to eat many kinds of food without 
the necessity of dieting or exercising.

(Continued from page 25) 

film called "The Poor Mother" (La 
Madre Folle) in which his wife, 
Soava Gallone, one of the finest ac- 
tresses in Italy, plays a double role. 
In this picture she confirms her repu- 
tation as a wonderful comedian as 
"the poor mother," and a beautiful 
actress as the daughter. 


Russian film fans are always very 
busy. After the success reported by 
the film "Polikuchka," two other 
photoplays have been completed. 

One of them is called "Jola" and 
deals, according to an old Russian 
legend, with the story of a woman 

The other is "The Defeat of Sa- 
tan" and is another legend of the 
time before Jesus Christ. 

Both are very characteristic, as 
they are full of real Russian atmos- 
phere (many scenes were shot in the 
Russian mountains or near the river 
Volga) and depict, of course, Russian 
customs and habits. 


It is a pity that the cinema was not 
yet discovered when Christopher Co- 
lumbus discovered America, if it had 
been, many cameramen would have 
certainly accompanied him in his long 
journey. But producers of different 
countries now wish to immortalize 
on the screen the name of the fa- 
mous discoverer, and different pic- 
tures haA'e been made which depict 
his life. 

A few years ago — that is, near the 
end of the war— France sent Georges 
Wague to discover America in a pic- 
ture entitled "The Adventure of 
Christopher Columbus." Altho this 
was very well acted, the photography 
and the continuity were not very 
satisfactory. And now Germany has 
just sent one of her actors, Albert 
Bassermann. to discover in his turn, 
the New World. 

A very characteristic German pic- 
ture is "Chaos." It is an astron- 
omical and comic picture, quite orig- 
inal and attractive. It represents the 
type in which the Germans seem to 


I had the opportunity of seeing 
lately "Samson and Delilah," the new 
picture produced at the studios of 
the Vita-Film in Vienna. Of course 
it tells us the Biblical story, but an- 
other story is in it of the strongest 
man and the girl who won him. This 
picture is one of the best Austria has 
so far produced and the acting of 
Maria Corda, the Austrian star, is

It's all off again with Pola and 
Charlie. Pola says she will never be 
Mrs. Chaplin, so that's the end of 
that. This shocking truth was borne 
in upon the public of Hollywood last 
week when both Charlie and Pola at- 
tended a big hotel opening. But 
Charlie was with Leonore Ulric while- 
Lola was with "Big Bill" Tilden and 
Manuel Alonzo, the tennis players. 
"I realized rive weeks ago that it was 
an impossibility." said Pola. "Charlie 
is lacking in all matrimonial require- 
ments, he is too temperamental. I'm 
glad it's over now. I can think of my 
work again." 

Leonore Ulric laughed when she 
was asked if she had matrimonial 
designs upon Charlie. "Not for me." 
she said briefly.

To Retain those 
Eyes of Youth 

One's age first begins to show about 
the EYES. But women are often un- 
mindful of this, and through neglect 
or improper care allow their EYES 
to become discolored, dull and 
heavy looking. 

Murine will do much to preserve 
and enhance the natural beauty of 
the EYES. It quickly soothes away 
discoloration and imparts a youth- 
ful sparkle to even the most neg- 
lected EYES. 

Murine is delightfully refreshing 
after reading, sewing, motoring and 
all outdoor activities. It's good for 
the EYES — contains no belladonna 
or other harmful ingredients. 

Our attractively illustrated book, "Beauty 
hies Within the Eyes," tells houi to prop- 
erly care for your Eyes, Brouis and Lashes, 
arid thus enhance their beauty. Send for

There's Music in your Eyes, dear 

WHAT cared he what rec- 
ord she played? For him 
the music in her eyes — eyes 
now questioning, now dream- 
ing, now mocking — was the 
joy of heaven on earth. 

Are your eyes as lovely as 
they could be? You can great- 
ly improve their beauty by car- 
ing for the lashes. Darken the 
lashes with WINX to make 
them appear longer and heav- 
ier. Apply it with the glass 
rod attached to the stopper — 
an immense improvement over 
the old unsanitary brush meth- 
od of application. WINX dries 

instantly and lasts. Even per- 
spiration or weeping at the 
theatre will not affect it. Ab- 
solutely harmless. 

WINX (black or brown), 75 
cents. To nourish the lashes 
and promote growth use col- 
orless cream Lashlux at night. 
Cream Lashlux (black, brown 
or colorless), 50 cents. At 
drug or department stores or 
by mail. 

Mail a dime today for a sample of 
WINX, large enough to keep your 
eyes beautiful for a week. For an- 
other dime you will receive a sample 
of PERT, the waterproof rouge, that 
stays on until you remove it

Seena Owen, who returned re- 
cently from Banff in the Canadian 
Rockies, has signed to star in Whit- 
man Bennett's screen adaptation of 
"The Leavenworth Case," by Anna 
Katherine Green.' Mr. Lionel Bar- 
rymore co-starred with her in "Un-

functions they performed, while on 
location, was acting as judges in a 
baby show in which the contestants 
were swarthy little Indians. 

Lloyd Hamilton, the motion-pic- 
ture comedian, has left Los Angeles 
for New York where he will imme- 
diately begin production at the D. \Y. 
Griffith Studios in Mamaroneck, on 
his first five-reel comedy. The story 
in which he will appear is called 
"Black and White" and is the same 
production in which Al Jolson was 
rehearsing when he fled without 
notice to Europe. 

Griffith is contemplating a film epic 
of the American Revolution. He has 
a scenario prepared and one star 
selected, Carol Dempster. It has been 
proposed that the Daughters of the 
American Revolution sponsor it. 

George Pembroke, well-known ju- 
venile lead on stage and screen, ha.s 
signed up with George Beban for his 
current production to be made here

remembered for his work in support

David Belasco has completed the

outcome of scientific research and the 
result of years of experimental work, 
it will revolutionize stage lighting. 
He believes the most interesting, im- 
portant and potential department of 
play production — aside from acting 
— - is lighting. Heretofore, color 
lighting on the stage has been accom- 
plished by the use of gelatin mediums. 
This process was and is unsatisfac- 
tory. Mr. Belasco's innovation will 
make it as extinct as the dodo.

Cat and other familiar resorts in 
New York's artistic center. Tiny 
Tim, the candy man, who sells the 
soul candy, which "stirs the emotions 
and charms the heart," is one of the 
interesting figures of the Village who 
is shown in the scene. He peddles 
his candy to the extras on the set 
just as he does nightly in the cafes 

News has just come from abroad 
that Pedro de Cordoba, well-known 

artist, is to be starred in "I Will 
Repay," the Henry Kolker produc- 
tion being made in Great Britain 
now. Prior to this Mr. de Cordoba 
played the lead in "The Fires of 
Fate," a picture made in Egypt. At 
present he may be seen with Madge 
Kennedy in "The Purple Highway." 

A punster has had the nerve to 
submit this : "Ever since an ambi- 
tious publicity man put a whale on 
top of Pike's Peak to advertise 
Elmer Clifton's 'Down to the Sea in 
Ships' we have been expecting to 
hear that someone has hitched 'The 
Covered Wagon' to a star." 

Daniel Carson Goodman is cutting 
and editing his third production for 
Equity, titled "The Daring Years." 
The cast includes Mildred Harris, 
Charles Emmet Mack, Mary Carr, 
Tyrone Powers and Clara Bow. 

"New York is the logical place to 
make pictures," says Richard Row- 
land, general manager of First 
National, who confidently expects to 
be producing the major portion of 
First National's releases in the East. 
"The scenery in California," he goes 
on, "has been overworked and pro- 
duction on the Coast is so far away 
from the home office that it is impos- 
sible to watch proceedings. Until 
business can be regulated so that the 
heads of the company are at the scene 
of activity, we are going to continue 
to hear these complaints registered 
against the ridiculous cost of produc- 
tion. The man who furnishes the 
bank-roll and who is personally in- 
terested in the production of the 
picture should be able to consult with 
his director by word of mouth. Tele- 
grams, telephone and letters have 
proved eminently unsatisfactory in 
many cases. There is no prettier 
country for outdoor scenes in the 
spring, summer and fall, than New 
York and vicinity. The Hudson 
River, the Adirondack's. Long Island 
and the Catskills furnish scenery that 
cannot be duplicated anywhere else 
in the world."

Hlow Youi Own Horn

lie smiled brightly on Mr. Small, who 
was fizzing like a buttle of soda 
water. "< *ne \\ eek from tonight 
ont week," he repeated significantly, 
holding the millionaire's eye, "we 
will show you all the first demonstra 
t HMi of wireless power ever made!" 

The sputtering Small met the tri 
Umphant smirk of Dinsmore Bcvan, 
ami remembered a long li-t of old 
scores tn be evened up. \\ hat a storj 
it would make at the club- the Wise 
Boy of W all Street gypped l>y a 
tramp, h was too good to spoil, and 
anyway he luul given his promise 
that tlii- audacious rascal should 
have a week in which to blow his 
own horn. 1 le burst into a roar of 
laughter, prodding a knowing elbow 
into Jack's ribs. "A week, eh? Nol 
much time, my boy !" 

lack's blue gaze sought Ann grave- 
ly, "< )li. I dont know." lie -aid. "after 
all. the world was made in seven days, 
you know. Perhaps it can be made 
over in a week, who knows?" 

And Ann. the modern, saw fit to 
blush again, as tho his remark could 
by any possibility have had anything 
to do with her ! 

To quote Buddy, the week that 
followed was "the snake's hips." lie 
was not quite clear just how the 
miracle had been wrought hut Life 
had taught him to ask no questions, 
and so he took what was ottered — 
two helpings, and made no comments 
until he and his brother were safely 
in bed in the luxurious room that 
looked to his awed gaze like one of 
those movie palaces the -well skirt 
that marries the he-man hero lives in. 

"Say, I -aw you and Ann in the 
garden this afternoon." he confided 
at such a time, "now dont get sore, 
only do you think it's straight to kiss 
another guy's girl ?" 

"Ann isn't another guy'- girl," 
Jack's voice came from the darkness 
a trirle tremulously, "-he'- my girl. 
Buddy! She and Augustus dont 
want to get married, and this after- 
noon she promised to marry me, only 
we are going to keep it a secret till 
the evening we test out the inven- 

Buddy extended a small, hard hand 
in congratulation. "That's the ant's 
Adam's apple!" he avowed. "Say, 
I bet that Yates dame with the de- 
mountable complexion is going to be 
sore! She has you picked to do a

derful new invention which will enlarge the

massage, no fake free treatments to deceive 
you. A simple, effective, harmless home de- 
veloper you use a few minutes night and 
morning until fully developed. That is all, 
simply use it, nature brings the rounded 
contour of perfect beauty which every woman 
secretly craves.

The R.eal Norma Talmadge 

So much has been written about the work of this famous 
screen star that when Harry Carr lifts the curtain and 
reveals the happy home life of Norma Talmadge as Mrs. 
Joseph Schenck, wife of the producer, it comes as a 
pleasant surprise to her admiring public. 

The Editor Crossifis 

Intimate, personal glimpses into the lives of motion-pic- 
ture stars that differ from most of the news you hear 
about them are given by the editor whose opportunity for 
meeting screen celebrities "off duty" affords material for 
interesting reading.

On the stands October first 

liar! It's going to work all right, 
isn't it?" 

"Sure it is!" Jack said cheerfully. 
Horn-blowing was getting a habit 
with him nowadays, but in his 
heart he was not so sure, and as he 
sat a few nights later at the trans- 
mitter which had been placed in the 
Jolyon drawing-room waiting for the 
first faint ticking which would prove 
success, his confident smile covered 
a sick fear. If the thing should fail, 
he must in common honesty give 
Bevan back his check, and start 
out again on the road that led away 
from Love and Happiness — and Ann. 

He started from his thoughts at 
the sound of her name, spoken acidly 
on Mrs. Yates' tongue, "Ann is at 
the cabin with Augustus tonight, is 
she, Mr. Small? I thought that she 
would probably prefer to await the 
result — at this end." 

There was no mistaking the in- 
sinuation of the emphasis, especially 
as it was accompanied by a spiteful 
glance toward the man who had not 
chosen to become her son-in-law. 
Small whirled with a snarl upon 
Jack. "What? D'you mean to say 
that you've dared " 

Jack interrupted sternly. Hand 
on the transmitter, every nerve tense 
with listening for the first tick, he 
faced the millionaire's purple rage 
steadily, "I have dared to love your 
daughter, yes ! But I would never 
have spoken of it to her if Augustus 
had not confessed that they did not 
care for each other." 

"But — that's carrying the joke too 
far ! A common soldier — a tramp 

" Small turned to the others, 

sputtering out the story of the im- 
posture, waving a pudgy diamonded 
forefinger at Jack who stood very 
straight as tho at attention under 
their curious, hostile eyes, "and now 
this — this impostor dares to tell me. 
he hopes to marry my daughter — 
ha ! ha ! That would be a joke — a 
fellow without a penny " 

"How about the check I gave 
you ?" Bevan's voice was ugly. For 
reply Jack silently took the slip of 
paper from his pocket, tore it across 
and handed it to him. At almost the 
same moment the instrument beside 
him began to tick ! Jack laughed 
exultantly, facing them, head high. 
"A common soldier!" he said with a 
great breath, "that's the finest com- 
pliment you could pay me! And as 
for the rest — yes, I am penniless — 
except for a half share in Augustus' 
invention !" 

Dinsmore Bevan smiled a sickly 
smile. "I was hasty," he began pro- 
pitiatingly, "suppose I write you an- 
other check "

rupted. Jack picked up the receiver 
and his face went white as he 
listened. "You say the cabin is 
electrified and you cant get out? Au- 
gustus is unconscious? For God's 
sake keep away from anything metal, 

and I'll be there " he turned upon 

them, "one of the high tension wires 
must have fallen against the ridge- 
pole flashing ! They'll be roasted 
alive " 

Mr. Small had sunk down into a 
chair. He seemed to have shrunken 
all in a moment until his clothes hung 
loosely on him. "I thought- — I cut 

the arterial lead " he muttered. 

"I wanted the experiment to fail so 

I could buy Bevan's share " he 

began to whimper, "save her, young 
man, and I'll give you ten thousand 
dollars- — twenty " 

But Jack was gone. A small 
pajamaed figure met him in the hall, 
and for one instant he paused, grip- 
ping Buddy's shoulder with fingers 
that left a mark for days. "Do you 
know any prayers, kid?" Jack asked 
him tensely, "if you do, get down on 
your knees and say them till I get 
back — with her!" 

Obediently Buddy slid down and 
prayed the only prayer he knew. 
"Now I lay me down to sleep" — he 
was still repeating it in a voice hoarse 
from fatigue, an hour later when 
they all returned, with Jack in the 
midst of a worshipping throng. From 
the clamor of many voices, disjointed 
facts floated thru Buddy's sleep- 
dazed brain, Jack had climbed the 
steel tower of the power line and 
jumped down on the broken wire- 
swinging it free from the cabin. . . . 

The figures of his brother and Ann 
seemed to recede in his head, and 
then grow to enormous size — he had 
never seen such a large kiss even in 
the final close-up of a movie ! " — it's 
the red-blooded — he-men that gets — 
'em every time," Buddy muttered 
sagely from the depths of a long and 
varied cinema experience as the 
waves of sleep rolled finally over 
him, "just the same — that guy, 
Shakespeare, was right — you gotter 
— blow — your own — horn "

Trilby is enacted by Andree Lafay-

France to create the role. She gives 
a performance marked with poignant 
charm — and singing with divine 
romance. The Svengali of Arthur

YOU ? 


A perfect lookii 
nose can easily 
be yours • • • 


TIME ADVANCES — as does science succeed in 
perfecting each invention. My 15 years of ex- 
perience in manufacturing and selling Nose Shapers 
ha vi' proven to me that I can now offer to the 
unfortunate possessors of ill-shapen noses the most 
meritorious Nose Adjuster of the age. My latest 
improved Model No 'Jo (U. S. and many foreign 
patents) has so many superior qualities that it 
surpasses all my previous shapers and other Nose 
Adjusters by a large margin. 

In the first place, my newest appliance is better 
fitting; the adjustments are such that it will fit 
every nose without exception — my apparatus is 
constructed of light weight metal, and is afforded 
very accurate regulation by means of six hexag- 
onal screws, which are regulated with a key and 
the screws are then locked in the desired position, 
'these screws will bring about the exact pressure 
for correcting the various tiusal deformities — such 
as : Long — pointed nose — pug — hook or shrew nose 

— and turned up nose — and will give marked suc- 
cess in modulating the distended or wide nostrils. 
There are no straps to be pulled in order to exert 
pressure on the nasal organ. 

Model No. 25 is upholstered inside with a very 
fine chamois (covering a layer of thin metal) 
which protects the nose from direct contact with 
the apparatus; this lining of metal causes an 
even, moderate pressure on the parts being cor- 
rected, thus avoiding a harsh, violent pressure 
in any one place. 

Model No. 25 is guaranteed, and eorrcets now 
all ill-shaped noses without operation, quickly, 
safely, comfortably and permanently. It is to be 
worn at night and, therefore, will not interfere 
with your daily work. 

// you wish to have a perfect looking nose, 
write today for my free booklet which tells you 
how to correct ill-shaped noses without cost if 
not satisfactory.

"The Brass Bottle" features the 
struggles of a young architecl who 
comes into possession <>t an ancient 
antique from which emerges a grate 
t'ul genie after an imprisonment of 
»i\ thousand years. Every wish of 
the architect is gratified as a result. 
But the illusions the black magic of 
the story are unfortunately missing. 
What is revealed is an array of 
hackneyed gags with Ernest Torrence 
as the genie, Tully Marshall as a 
musty, old professor, and Harry 
Myers as the architect executing the 
high jinks. The fanciful note is very 
faint. As a result the picture is often 
stupid. And it could have been such 
an effective fantasy. 

AS long as Mae Murray continues 
to maintain her penchant for 
L worshiping at the shrine of 
Terpsichore — just so long will she 
fail to develop any hidden talent 
which may reveal her as an actress of

her husband — is allowed to pout and

the pursuit of riches by a grasping 
French papa and his irrepressible 
daughter — who have come to America 
to chase an eligible young man from 
Xew York to Miami. There is no 
vital spark discernible. Tt follows an 
even course straight to an orthodox 
movie climax — in which the young 
eligible is captured after the girl be- 
comes wounded in a shooting affair.

WE cannot mention any direc-

who can be so dependably 
erratic. He balances such a fine 
achievement as "Trilby." with an im- 
possible piece of claptrap such as 
"Wandering Daughters" (First Na- 
tional). The fault here is not entirely 
Mr. Young's. In the first place, the 
story which is bared to the mercies 
of the screen is an inconsequential, 
stupid affair concerning the morals of 
young girls — an idea which has long 
outlived its usefulness in film circles,
